Variety is the spice of life, they say, and while most variety shows are the kind of spice that clumps at the bottom of the jar, the weekly show Scot Nery's Boobie Trap — with its blazing panoply of magicians and musicians, villains and vaudevillians — gives you everything from high wires to low humor. Nery, a contortionist and comedian himself, somehow juggles a circus that could otherwise degenerate into anarchy. He manages these wild acts to give audiences something they never thought they'd see, as well as the tried-and-true circus acts that have pleased crowds since Barnum & Bailey were but glimmers in their fathers' eyes.
