THE FREAK SHOW IS ALIVE AND WELL

April 27, 2011

Some carny and freak shows still operational in the US. Got it from a WIRED US Edition (still the coolest mag on earth) article.

I remember ringleader barkers like this at the Fiesta Carnival getting the audience piqued and ready. Also that Cirque De Soleil  show I caught with an ex in the early 2000s. Have all the local carny shows gone?

Take a look at the dwarf Victorian drama show.

Or good ole crab lady. Reminds me of that great HBO series (canceled at the end of the second season, mind) centered around a roving carny show in 1930s US midwest  Carnivale.

Take a look at the rest of the WIRED US article HERE.
