This bright pink, yellow and green poster from 1990 - in the style of an old-fashioned circus handbill - advertises The Monster Show at Club Lower Links in Chicago. Using hilarity as a hook, it promises “sights and frights” and shows by performance artists that are filled with "art, humor and horror."
A cartoon drawing of a smiling monster terrorizing a man underscores these messages. And just so those reading the poster have no doubt that silliness will prevail, it states at the bottom, “A Product of Genetic Engineering Somehow Gone Terribly Wrong.” Who wants to miss that show?
This fun poster would be a great hit in a teen’s bedroom or a dorm room or any place where the spirits are upbeat and the performances (professional and amateur) are spontaneous and fun. This poster will lighten the mood in any space where it is hung.
