Traditions Dr. Von Houligan's Carnival of Calamities follows:

Since the 1820's, Bar Rooms and Western Saloons began producing variety shows to attract customers. Vaudeville Theaters expanded on these variety shows making them more family friendly and attracting talents from singers, dancers, comedians along with variety, novelty and specialty acts that were more acceptable for general audiences.

Television developed shows like Ed Sullivan, The Smother's Brothers, Lawrence Welk, Dina Shore, Johnny Carson … the list goes on and on.

Today, variety acts are popular in Las Vegas and other casinos, at county and state fairs, for holiday parties and at conventions, in universities and colleges and still on television.

Dr. Von Houligan's Carnival of Calamities is a collection of unique, top-shelf entertainers who have performed together all across Canada and England with personal credits that reach around the globe.
