Storyline

February 5, 1993, in front of a standing room-only-crowd at Seattle's Moore Theatre, impresario Jim Rose performs his own odd tricks - putting a screwdriver up his nose, pounding a nail into his head, and pushing his face into broken glass. He also introduces and provides a running commentary on four other sideshow performers: Mr. Lifto, who can lift and swing heavy objects from various body piercings, the Torture King, who turns himself into a human pincushion, the Enigma, who swallows worms, crickets, and swords, and Matt "The Tube" Crowley, who ingests various things into his nose, mouth, and stomach and bring them back out. The crowd goes wild. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Stomach turning good fun....
18 January 2000 | by (Trenton, Ontario) – See all my reviews

The fully coolest, stomach turning, make ya swirm, thing I've ever seen. Definately not for the squeemish. This show shows just how versitile and durable the human body can be...pins and needles, stomach pumps and broken glass and heavy objects hanging from various body parts...nothing is too extreme!!!
