The Unholy Roller Revival - Thursday June 15 - 2017

The Snake Oil Festival weekend opens with a bang by bringing you the Unholy Roller Revival! The Unholy Roller Revival is a variety show with all of the fire and brimstone of an old time Pentecostal tent revival, but with none of the pesky damnation and judgment. Join us for an evening of hilarious and sexy variety that pays homage to the bygone days when hoochie coochie shows, carnivals and circus sideshows traveled behind holy-rolling tent revivals to entertain and save the public, while relieving them of a few dollars at the same time. Follow the Reverend, Pastor, Father, Brother Ben Wisdom as he leads you down the road to Hell and glittery salvation with an all star cast of Ministers of Misbehavin' featuring burlesque, sideshow and live music like only the holy temple of New Orleans can provide! 

Starring: Dr. Sick, Ben Wisdom, Little Luna, Dahlia Dolorosa, Grandmafun, Heather Loop, Mena Domena, Mr. Isaiah Esquire, Phat Mandee, Queenie O'Hart, Remy Dee, Scarlette Revolver and Tsarina Hellfire!
