WHAT IS SIDESHOW / FREAKSHOW?

SIDESHOW / FREAKSHOW IS AN INCREDIBLE NICHE ART FORM. MOST SIDESHOWS SHOWCASE INCREDIBLE FEATS OF PAIN TOLERANCE OR INDURANCE THAT ARE NOT MAGIC- ALL GLASS, NAILS, SCISSORS, RAZOR BLADES, MOUSE TRAPS ETC ARE REAL

SIDESHOW HISTORY TRACES THESE FEATS AS FAR BACK AS THOUSANDS OF YEARS- TO "FAKIR" ACTS WHERE SWORD SWALLOWERS AND BED OF NAILS ARTISTS WOULD SHOW THEIR DEVOTION TO GOD BY PERFORMING THESE STUNTS AS STREET PERFORMERS.

LATER, THESE ACTS BECAME INVOLVED IN CIRCUSES AND CARNIVALS AS A "10 IN 1" OR SIDE SHOW, AND THUS COINED THE "SIDESHOW" NAME. PERFORMERS WERE OFTEN CALLED "FREAKS"- A NAME WE NOW USE PROUDLY IN OUR COMMUNITY.

FOR THAT REASON SIDESHOW AND FREAKSHOW ARE SOMETIMES USED INTERCHANGABLY.
