Seasoned Sideshow Siblings, Danny Borneo and Reggie Bügmüncher have been performing as the dynamic duo, the Olde City Sideshow, for over a decade. They travel the world with a fully scalable comedic danger show that harkens back to the heyday of classic American sideshow with a vaudeville, nightclub flair. They have been seen on TV, written about in books and magazine based on Tattoo, Sideshow/Circus, Performing Arts and alternative culture.

Reggie Bügmüncher is an American entertainer based in Los Angeles. She is ½ of Philadelphia’s Olde City Sideshow, Co-Producer of the Southern Sideshow Hootenanny (New Orleans) and has been performing in sideshow for over a decade. As a solo performer, she travels the country working everything from tent shows & the midway to nightclubs and variety shows. Reggie is one of the few women in the world performing several unique acts such as the anatomical wonder act and riding a motorcycle in a high wire thrill show. She has appeared on the Gong Show, America’s Got Talent, been featured in stories by news outlets from Fox to NPR and in books and magazines on Tattoos and Sideshow. She has opened up for Primus, suspended for Jane's Addiction, performed for Ripley’s Believe it or Not, and at Tattoo Conventions across the globe.

As one half of Olde City Sideshow, Danny Borneo has entertained across America with his unique version of sideshow shenanigans and quick wit. Making crowds laugh, cry and swoon from coast to coast has been his specialty. From his formal training with some of the greats of the sideshow world such as Harley Newman, Todd Robbins and Chris McDaniel to name a few, Danny has left no stone unturned in his pursuit of education so that he can keep the sideshow arts alive and bring them to the masses. An incomparable emcee, especially when a few cocktails are in the mix. Having hosted and announced for several award winning and touring burlesque and variety arts acts up and down the east coast, he now aims to entertain you!
