Madame Chandelier trained and sang as an opera singer for years, until one day she looked around and thought, you know what opera really needs? It needs more jokes. So she bought an accordion and ran away with the circus. The comedy circus. And here she is... With drinking games! A sing-a-long! And a death scene you’ll never forget.
