Sharkbite Sideshow is the best place in Manhattan to enjoy the allure of burlesque, the wit and wisdom of a good story, and the mayhem of a circus sideshow. All while enjoying a beer from our new sponsor, SPEAKEASY PROHIBITION!

Do you have a shark tattoo? Are you a certified scuba diver? You can get into the show for half price! Just show Joe the Shark at the door your tat or scuba card for the discount. Sorry, one (1) discount per costumer.

Yes, Advanced Tickets are $15 on the website, but you are getting in before the general admission (at the door) sales, and thus will get your pick of the best seats in the house.

Joe has finally found a way to merge his love of sharks and his love for the NYC burlesque and variety arts scene and has created a show with a very unique mission statement. Part of the proceeds from every Sharkbite Sideshow will be donated to shark conservation. You read that right, Joe the Shark takes his love of sharks very seriously and will continue to donate to the Fox Shark Research Foundation, founded by shark attack survivor Rodney Fox. After having dived with Rodney Fox and his son Andrew, Joe the Shark is committed to the safety and preservation of these majestic, and often misunderstood, animals. For every human killed by a shark, humans kill two million sharks. Sad, but true.

Come on down to the Sharkbite Sideshow! We’ll take a bite out of ya!

* It is strongly recommended to but tickets in advance and to arrive before 8pm.
Please note, ticket holders who arrive after 8pm may not get into the show if the room is at full capacity and will not receive a refund.
