Gerbil Probe: The Media Empire of Michael Allen Rose

From sideshow like rock n' roll circus aesthetics to fire-tinged high-energy readings, Michael loves to put on a show.

Michael has an MFA in Playwriting from Southern Illinois University and a dual BA in English and Communication Arts (Theatre) from Minot State University. In addition to producing plays for his company RoShamBo, he also creates performance art and burlesque around Chicago and hosts the Ultimate Bizarro Showdown at Portland, Oregon’s Bizarro Con each year. Below, you'll find upcoming appearances at conventions, shows and performances, as well as a photo gallery revealing many different sides of MAR!
