Ilise “The Lady Aye” Carter shares her evolution from mild-mannered financial editor to the celebrated “Sweetheart of the Sideshow”. This is a unique opportunity to see a larger than life stage personality, pull back the curtain to expose the challenges she had to overcome in an honest and relatable way. Her story exemplifies how overcoming fears can make perceived failures into real opportunities – a skill everyone can benefit from. Live performances of traditional sideshow skills like walking on glass, sword swallowing, and human blockhead make this is a one-of-a-kind experience.
