Coney Island Circus Sideshow

Leo the Human Gumby
One of the last of its kind, this ten-act extravaganza of human oddities aims to satisfy nostalgic and progressive temperaments alike. Now in its 29th season, the iconic spectacle adds a footnote to the controversial freak-show conversation by celebrating the talents of those “born different.” The lineup includes contortionists, sword swallowers, fire eaters and escape artists.

Deffinitely something truly amazing and incredible to see. All the acts are amazing and crazy to watch. My favorite is Leo The Human Gumby the way he is able move and contort is truly unbelievable.

There is something extraordinary about this show and it's not just the acts, it's the way it both harks back to a previous era and yet at the same time feels incredibly fresh. I've been a couple of times and it's on my list of things I most recommend to anyone heading to New York who wants to experience something slightly 'different'. The acts are amazing and the show feels edgy, controversial and extreme. Like Coney Island itself it's an acquired taste but one definitely worth trying.
