Story
Tagline
An impish Cabaret version of Rasputin. - The Dallas Observer.
Introduction
Russ Sharek has been described by reliable sources as a zen fool, benevolent supervillain, misanthropic community leader, clown father figure and Impish Cabaret Rasputin.

He's a teacher known for empowering people to challenge their fears, teaching hat tricks and punching the occasional metaphoric elephant.

As a variety performer, Russ is both classically and self-trained in arts that would make a ninja blush. His interactive, character-driven approach to entertainment has led him to working for audiences of all sizes.

He has a doctor's prescription for vodka gimlets, independent control over at least one of his eyebrows and, thanks to his deep involvement in DFW's live theater revolution, more photos of his baggy-pants covered backside on the internet than the best of burlesque dancers.

One New Year's Eve he helped invent the Positivity Pill, and has since used that arcane knowledge to help transform a juggling club into a thriving community of performing artists, theater enthusiasts and Circus Freaks.
