TIME
9:00pm - 11:00pm

Snake Oil is proud to bring you the Unholy Roller Revival, a burlesque variety show with the fire and brimstone of an old time Pentecostal tent revival, but with no pesky damnation & judgment. If you grew up religious, like to laugh when Jimmy Swaggart sleeps with hookers, or if you love music and burlesque, then this is the show for you! The Unholy Roller Revival takes you on a journey to a bygone era when dancing ladies, musicians, and sideshows traveled with religious revivals to towns far and wide, to entertain and save the public, while relieving them of a few dollars. This event pays homage to that era by rolling all of the music, dancing, sideshow, and gospel into one hilarious show that lampoons religion & is guaranteed to have you in the aisles, jumping up & down, and screaming, "HALLELUJAH"! With, St. Cecelia's Asylum Chorus, Dr. Sick's Sacred Sextette, Pastor Ben Wisdom, Little Luna, Ginger Licious, GoGo McGregor, & Lady Lucerne.
