If you've no idea what a Juggalo is then simply ignore this post. Or I suppose you could look up the term, but why? If you're not a Juggalo, you very likely are not by choice. Anyway...
Andy Martello (ME) will be performing two shows at the 10th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos in Cave In Rock, IL August 8th (at 2:30PM) and 9th (at 4:00PM).
Tell your friends who will be in attendance to come watch the show and give out a big old "WOOT" or two.

I'm a bit worried about this one. No telling how my act will go over with this crowd, but I suspect it will be quite cool overall. Looking over the lineup I see many a noteworthy name.
Insane Clown Posse (of course)
Rowdy Roddy Piper
Of course, if Coolio will be there I may have an issue.
See, some time ago I used to have a series of opening lines from my stand-up act that would start off with the line, "I had that dream again where...[insert avant garde comedy scenario here]". As an example...
"I had that dream again where I was headlining at Caesars Palace to a sold-out show. I'm at the top of my game and this show will mark the breakthrough moment that would launch me into super stardom. This is the moment I've waited for all my life!
THEN, as the curtain rises and I take the stage I realize that the ENTIRE CROWD is filled exclusively with my ex-girlfriends and their best friends. And my mother is taking tickets at the door, saying 'I told him he should have something to fall back on. Enjoy the show'"
Always some level of genius in the comedy world so far as I am concerned. of course I am biased.
Where does Coolio fit into this? Well...
"I had that dream again where I was a contestant on Hollywood Squares playing against the Devil for my soul. If I win I keep my soul and live a life of eternal salvation. If I lose my soul is gone and I face eternal damnation.
SUDDENLY I find myself in the unenviable position of having to say, 'I'll take Coolio for the block'".
