M is for Medicine Show

As part of LLAWN03 Mr & Mrs Clark were in Llandudno to present their Medicine Show.

The show combines song, dance and a dark sense of comedy to entertain, ridicule and provoke good health practice.

Members of the audience are cured of bad auras and returned to a state of utopian happiness.

A contribution to ABC Wednesday.


  1. Llandudno is in Wales, isn't it? Long ago we were camping out in Wales and we visited Llandudno. I love Wales and so did our children.We saw the castle and Betws- el- Coed, which was impressive for all of us.
    Thanks for your contribution!
    Wil, ABCW Team.

  2. Llandudno is on my list to visit next time I'm over as my Nana Jones was born there in the late 1800s. But I must ask, is there a reason why the lady's stockings are all torn and holey?

    1. It is part of the costume – something in the “burlesque” tradition I suppose or maybe it is what is known as "shabby chicque"

  3. I don't know it but it seems like much fun!

    Have a nice ABC-week / - day

  5. She reminds me of Rocky Horror Picture Show... lol

  6. Uhm, they look rather scary. But, I suppose that's the point of their humor.The View from the Top of the Ladder

  7. My goodness. They're going to scare people into staying healthy! A new meaning to medicine show .., in the old west over here on this side of the pond those were traveling shows that hawked patent medicines, usually which had a lot of alcohol in them.

  8. It looked quite fun - and a proper laugh is good for you health, they say.
