Incredible Blood Brothers freakshow entertainers fresh from The Circus Of Horrors and the Carnival Of The Bizarre. They also compere the Carnival Of the Bizarre and their own shows. Appearing at festivals such as Leeds / Reading and The Bulldog Bash.
The Freakshow was launched at the start of 2004 by two founder members of the Circus, David Straitjacket and Martin Cole. Focusing heavily on sideshow skills, gruesome stunts and insane comedy, The Incredible Blood Brothers Freakshow is circus for grown ups, a vicious cabaret that can be tailored to run anywhere from 30 – 90 minutes.
Since launching this show they have had great success – the highlight so far being performing for 2000 people on the main stage of the Birmingham academy and a full 90 minute show at the Dancehouse theatre, Manchester. This is an independent production which is expected to be added to the Comedy Store, ‘Manchester Festival Of Comedy’.
