Winter is coming and Laughter League, in collaboration with Shakespeare Dallas, rings in the holidays with a holiday circus tent show. Come gather with this band of merry circus artists to celebrate this most joyous time of year. Hosted by the zany and dynamic clown duo Slappy and Monday, Circo Metropolis will engage audiences with spine-tingling acts, magical mirth and general mayhem, all presented under the idyllic setting of the Bavarian Big Top. It plays at Samuell-Grand Amphitheater in Dallas from December 16 – January 2.

In addition to Slappy and Monday, the intimate, eclectic tent show includes their endearing circus friends who will take audiences on an unparalleled journey, which combines the dazzling, daring aura of Cirque du Soleil with the madcap mirth of Saturday Night Live.
