WICKED CLOWN LOVE
Neal Medlyn's latest "bomb ass music based extravaganza" is built around the music of the Insane Clown Posse (ICP) and the worldwide opaque brother and sisterhood of the Juggalos. The show will revolve around Medlyn's dark specter versions of ICP songs, male bonding activities, flashlight wrestling, terror and horror, face paint, underground Midwestern horror rap, Faygo showers, clown love, and much more.

This is the sixth in Neal's ongoing pop star series, which has, until now included shows about mainstream recording artists like Lionel Richie, Phil Collins, Prince and Britney Spears. Wicked Clown Love explores his interest in regional cultural phenomena, particularly the Gathering of the Juggalos, ICP's yearly festival, at which legions of fans assemble for a raucous weekend of male bonding, music, and carnivalesque spectacle. Medlyn went to the Gathering in 2011 with longtime collaborator Farris Craddock to research this show and, to his surprise, enjoyed himself. He found a kinship between the "damaged nerds" he met there and the odd young men he grew up surrounded by in East Texas.

Additionally, he found connections in the intense revivalist feeling present at the festival to the ones he experienced as child in a family of traveling preachers. In this show, Medlyn uses what he saw and heard at the Gathering  the violent lyrics, constant nudity, unsanctioned fireworks, etc  and learned from extensive research into ICP and its followers. He utilizes his childhood love of hip-hop and sampling to transform selections from ICP's seven albums. His renditions are complete remakes of the songs, and include samples from the music of conflicted male songwriters like Dan Fogelberg.

The show also has a blog chronicling it's development at: http://mmfcl.wordpress.com/


Starring Neal Medlyn, Farris Craddock, Carmine Covelli and a variety of monsters. Lighting design by Madeline Best. Set design by Kathleen Hanna. Costumes by Larry Krone.

Wicked Clown Love is being brought to the Seacoast after the February 2012 world premiere sold-out run at The Kitchen in New York City. 3S Artspace and BUOY are elated to be working together to bring Neal Medlyn and his dark carnival to the Seacoast! WHOOP WHOOOOP!
