The Circus of HorrorsBy RodneyHatfieldJr for Into The Mind
Who doesn’t love the circus? The sights, the sounds, the smells, the fire. I’m not talking about a normal circus. I mean a horror fans circus. It is an alternative Circus with Bizarre & unbelievable acts from an almighty cast & performed to live rock music.
The Circus of Horrors is a British-based contemporary circus created by John (Dr) Haze and Gerry Cottle. Masterfully blending traditional circus acts with horror, black comedy, and rock music. It has gothic and steampunk imagery, with Victorian freak shows and burlesque. Their disclaimer goes as follows:
" THE CIRCUS OF HORRORS CONTAINS SOME NUDITY AND LANGUAGE OF AN ADULT NATURE.
IT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN, PEOPLE OF A NERVOUS DISPOSITION, CHAVS & SISSIES
THIS SHOW CONTAINS NUTS!!"
Regular performers include the inimitable Ringmaster Doktor Haze, Garry Stretch and his record-breaking elastic skin, Drew Blood, Hannibal Hellmurto's Sword Swallowing, Captain Dan with his civil wife Henry the Hoover, Anastasia IV Blade Walker, The Electric Chair, The Girl in the Bottle, The Mongolian Laughing Boy, 'Iona, The Oriental Contortionist, Hula Hoop Girls, The Kenyan Warriors, Chis Columbine & other Burlesque beauties.
