10th Annual Coney Island Beard and Moustache Competition Set for Sideshows by the Seashore

Coney Island, NY - Adam RealMan and Coney Island USA Present: The 10th Annual Coney Island Beard and Moustache Competition at Sideshows by the Seashore!

The strangest and most extravagant beards and moustaches descend upon Coney Island to see whose facial hair reigns supreme. Founded in 2008, the Coney Island Beard and Moustache Competition has grown to become one of Coney Island's most unique evenings of entertainment. Over the past nine years, hundreds of bearded men (and women) have competed to take home the much coveted Beard & Moustache Fez trophy and other great prizes.

"For the ten year anniversary, we're pulling no punches. This is going to be the best Coney Island Beard and Moustache show we've ever had. And I'm thrilled to announce that punk rock legend Handsome Dick Manitoba is going to be my co-host!" Adam RealMan, producer and host of the show emphatically states. "The judges range from writers to musicians to strongmen. We've also got a bunch of great vendors and sponsors. This is more than just a beard competition, it's some of the wackiest entertainment located in the birthplace of wacky entertainment!" RealMan went on to say.

Coney-centric categories for the competition include 'The Brass Ring' (Best in Show), 'Coney Island Curl' (Best Moustache Styled), 'Moustachio Marvel' (Best Moustache Natural), 'Ballyhoo Beard' (Best Beard Styled), 'Man or Beast' (Best Beard Natural), 'Hokum and Hoodwinked' (Best Fake Beard or Moustache), 'Dog and Pony' (Best Partial Beard/Sideburns), 'Come Out To Play' (Strongest Team Participation) and of course the much coveted 'Carny Trash' (Worst in Show).

Guest judges include Buck Wolf, writer and editor of Huffington Post Weird News, Charlene McPherson, singer of the award winning New York rock band Spanking Charlene and the duo, Sad Bastards of Brooklyn, Al and Danny Kavadlo, noted fitness authors and instructors, Matt Chrystal, President of the Garden State Beard & Moustache Society and Weird NJ correspondent and Big Ronnie Parisella, street artist and cigar aficionado.

Serpentina, the Flying Kavadlo Brothers and the Sad Bastards of Brooklyn will entertain the guests with their unusual acts, electrifying feats and tuneful songs.

Masters of Ceremony are punk rock legend, Sirius/XM host and Lower East Side bar owner, Handsome Dick Manitoba and Adam RealMan, Coney Island personality, strongman and sword swallower.
