Winner of the 2010 Hollywood Fringe Festival's Award for Best Cabaret/Circus!

FreakShow Deluxe hits the stage like a raucous freight-train - full of sexy performers, stunning visuals and a sense of humor that keeps the audience enthralled. Like the voice from a bygone era, the FreakShow Deluxe comes straight out of America's mythology. It is a dark vaudevillian extravaganza that keeps spectators coming back for more.

FreakShow Deluxe is not a "collection of glowing light" or "avant garde tribal culture" - it does not pretend to be "immersed into otherworldly magic" or "marching into the stratosphere on the wings of imagination..." FreakShow Deluxe certainly is NOT made up of "outsider artistic children that never grew up" who wish to "travel upon a modern day pirate ship."

FreakShow Deluxe is about the REAL. It deals in flesh and blood; in pain and pleasure; in flame, fire and sharp pointy things! It treads that fine line between the dastardly and the divine with danger, laughter and finesse. With FreakShow Deluxe's company of professional entertainers, it's actions prove the amazing and the astounding --

FreakShow Deluxe makes the impossible possible.





Rev Tommy Gunn Presents Paper on Sideshow Business In New Orleans

The Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association Conference - Galerie 2

Presentation:
Ain't No Big Top Here! Popular Culture Myths vs. The Realities of the Business For the Modern Freak Show & Side Show Performer As Exposed By an Actual Working Showman From His Real World Experience

In popular culture, there stands an existing series of myths about the circus and carnival freak and side show. Myths perpetuated about its performers, about how it conducts business, even about how the acts are performed.

The proliferation of these Freak and Side Show myths is continued in popular culture by fiction television shows such as Carnivale (HBO - series run 9/14/2003 to 3/27/2005) and American Horror Story: Freak Show (FX - currently broadcast; premiere date 10/08/2014); non-scripted reality documentary shows Freakshow (AMC - series run 2/14/20013 to 6/24/2014) and The Jim Rose Twisted Tour (Travel Channel – a 7 episode series premiered 03/30/2003, but ran for only 5 episodes); plus fictional films including Freaks (Tod Browning, 1932) and its "modern retelling," Freakshow (Asylum Films, 2007), which both featured actual human oddity performers.

This mixture of presentation and performance by Thomas Nealeigh, the founder and primary producer of The FreakShow Deluxe, Hollywood’s own & only carnival-style sideshow, explores the realities of the Freak and Side Show business and contrasts them to the popular myths. Nealeigh, a 2nd generation entertainer who performs as Reverend Tommy Gunn, shares his real-world experience performing for fairs, festivals, amusement parks, nightclubs, and theaters, while including anecdotal information he has gathered from “cutting jackpots” with other professionals in his field. Nealeigh is currently preparing his own children to perform.

Attendees will have a better understanding how the myths of popular culture have a real world effect on new performers and show producers trying to enter the field.
