JUNE 21st FRIDAY - UDTV NIGHTMARE FACTORY THE FREAK KINGS, DEAD FISH HANDSHAKE, & MESSAGE TO VENUS This is the show of the summer!!! The Freak Kings: New York's Craziest Sideshow Troupe! The heavily modified Illustrated Penguin & Baron Von Geiger (the World's Strangest Strongman) provide a fast paced, punk rock style show bringing slapstick originality to traditional sideshow stunts. The Freak Kings are guaranteed to amaze, scare, disgust and keep you laughing the entire time. The Baron holds the World Record for Extreme pierced weight lifting! Over 100lbs with both ears! He can also lift objects (and Penguin) with hooks in the eyes and flesh! He can even bend steel with his bare hands! Both Penguin and Baron are masters of some of the oldest sideshow stunts around including "The Human Block Head", the "Bed of Nails", Fire breathing, Sword Swallowing and and many more. Penguin can even perform the classic "Straight Jacket Escape" upside down! All real! All Live! Practiced and mastered by trained professionals. The Freak Kings have performed all over the world and are a regular fixture at the Coney Island Sideshow by the Seashore. Over the last few years they have been headlining the Tattooed Kingpin Tattoo Conventions including Baltimore, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Chicago, Reno & Long Island. The Freak Kings have also performed with many music tours, most notably the "Pedal to the Metal" tour with Mudvayne and also with Joan Jett. The duo have appeared in countless tattoo magazines including Savage, Inked, Pricked, Tattoo Society & Tattoo Revue. Most recently they have appeared in a WWE promo and the "Freakshow" reality show which premiered on AMC in February 2013. (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Freak-Kings/145938408790175) $7
