Profile

For the morbidly curious or those who want more than just the surf and sand, Coney Island Circus Sideshow may satiate that craving for the dark side. This ten-act group of freaks, wonders and human curiosities performs the standard fare: fire eating, sword swallowing, glass walking and beds of nails. Try not to look away while "The Great Fredini" pounds nails into his nose, or as Insectavora snacks on bugs. On Friday nights in the summer, Burlesque at the Beach performs old-time burlesque and vaudeville shows beginning at 10pm.
