clandestine organizations


Sometimes, the whisper in the night is not your conscience but a malevolent force.  The sound pierces the otherwise quiet night, urging you to do things…well, out of character.  Here are some of those voices.

First, a man runs a dial in horror show that is actually a cover for the mob in DIAL-A-FRIGHT.  Then, that incessant piano practicing down the hall is at it again in RECITAL PRACTICE.  Didn’t that girl die last week?  CALL CONTROL keeps the malevolence in good form for the final voice of unreason.

As the year winds to a close, ladies and gentlemen, the circus is not quite done.  Almost, but not quite.  Join Charlie Barker again as he has a couple more tickets left in the Sideshow of the Surreal.


Charlie Barker visits the bloodthirsty cutthroat world of business as the sideshow today.  It just sounded so…inviting for him.  Three absolutely true tales of terror from the corporate world are on the docket for this time.

The FOCUS GROUP is in full swing, but they always need new participants.  The old ones just seem to disappear.  Once you’ve got the process down, it’s time to put it to the FIELD TEST.  It’s a killer business model, to be sure.  Lastly, it’s sad when you don’t strike while the iron is hot.  Even worse when you are in THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME.

The Circus of the Unknown is in the red, ladies and gentlemen.  But for a sideshow, that may not necessarily be a bad thing.  Join us again, won’t you?
