HeyRubeCircus.com is a blogsite about circus and sideshow culture. The purpose of this site is to inform, inspire, connect and strengthen community.


We are pleased to include here on Sideshow World some of the exciting and relevant information from Noel's Hey Rube Circus.


About Noel Benedetti: She is an unreasonably passionate sideshow nerd. She grew up in Sarasota, FL and then spent three years in Madison, WI, neighboring the renowned town of Baraboo. It was in rural Wisconsin that she picked up a summer job as a carnie, working stick joints. After that experience, Noel moved to Austin, TX where she is currently active in the sideshow arts performing fire eating and spinning under the alias Ballyhoo Betty. Aside from spending her formative years in cities with rich circus traditions, she loves the pageantry, fanfare and history of the circus and sideshow.
