MORE INFO ABOUT HELLZAPOPPIN:
This vaudeville freak show of wonder is brought to you by Hellzapoppin's Founder, Ringleader, Master of Ceremonies, Producer, Director and Sideshow Stunt-Man, Mr. Bryce "the Govna" Graves. Brothers and sisters, you are about to meet a cavalcade of human curiosities the likes of which the world has never seen before and may never see again. The Govna will be your shepherd and your guide on a journey of miraculous discovery through the world of the strange, the weird, bizarre, odd and the unusual.
We're mavericks, trail blazers, rebels, rule breakers, outlaws...true uninhibited artists. We deliver our message through sideshow, and fuel our art through passion. Named after the most successful Broadway musical and movie from the late 30's and 40's, Hellzapoppin is a world renown theatrical circus thrill-show where some of the deadliest stunts in live entertainment are performed to loud crowd-pleasing musical tracks.
You might have seen Hellzapoppin's feature performer Andrew S on Ripley's Believe It Or Not, National Geographic Channel, Comedy Central, CBS, A&E, Science Channel, Discovery Channel and America's Got Talent! Andrew S is one of the biggest, best and most famous circus sideshow performers in the world. Andrew will be performing Sword Swallowing, Eye Socket Weight Lifting and his signature Guinness World Record stunt the Screw Face.
You'll see the world's very best YoYo artist Mr. Derek "the YoYo Guy" Cockrum! Derek will blow your mind and steal the show with his amazing incredible and unbelievable YoYo tricks! You'll witness with your own eyes the world's most amazing half-man Short E. Dangerously (aka Shorty). That's right, he's a half man cut in half at the waist and walks around on his hands. Shorty is featured in a 2 page spread inside the 2017 Ripley's Believe It Or Not book, Shatter Your Senses! He's traveled the world over many times performing at the world's largest festivals and very best music venues, theaters and has been featured on countless TV shows. Shorty is a hand-balancer acrobat and he also walks bare-handed on broken shards of glass while on fire.
You'll see the pain-proof strong man Mr. Eric Ross! Eric is a world renown magician and sideshow performer. He performs death defying stunts live on stage known as the Fakir act. He takes long skewers and shoves them right through his biceps, the palm of his hands and even the mandible which is located directly underneath his tongue and out his throat.
Spectators will experience one of the world's last authentic circus sideshows with performances using the human anatomy and death defying stunts and demonstrations of mind over matter, yet with no blood and no pain.

Canada’s longest running horror rock band, Forbidden Dimension started out in 1988. It was initially conceived as a one- man/one-off recording project, the result being a 7" EP "Into the Forbidden Dimension". 30 years later, Jackson Phibes and his cronies are still stranded in the Forbidden Dimension with no escape in sight.
a one man band who plays old style rock n' roll with hints of punk / garage / blues & surf. Drum beats are played with the feet at the same time as the guitar and singing.
