Dammit the Amazing Wonderdog, Chicken John’s faithful companion is turning 17, so Circus Redickuless is coming out of retirement for a special reunion show in honor of Dammit, the true star of the circus. The event takes place this Saturday, February 24th at 12 Galaxies in San Francisco. Come out and see Dammit not jump through the hoop one last time.
Here’s the announcement from Chicken’s newsletter:
Dammit the Amazing Wonderdog will turn (gulp) 17 years old. She had a sort of stroke in August, and is doing OK. We think she is blind in one eye, deaf in one ear and she is a little off balance. But in good spirits and happy and romping and doing all the dog things. We want to throw her a party. So for what will likely be the last time, The Circus Redickuless will take the stage at 12 Galaxies. That’s right, a bunch of the old circus folk are going to do some of the old acts. A few other people will pinch hit for others who are not around. This will likely be your only opportunity to see all the acts that you have heard about but thought too stupid to ever actually see. The idea of the circus was no content as the content. It’s a little confusing but we are carneys, after all. The show will be Dammit’s final performance and don’t expect too much. We started a circus 13 years ago. Who would have known?
