This vaudeville freak show of wonder is brought to you by Hellzapoppin’s Founder, Ringleader, Master of Ceremonies, Producer, Director and Sideshow Stunt-Man, Mr. Bryce “the Govna” Graves. Brothers and sisters, you are about to meet a cavalcade of human curiosities the likes of which the world has never seen before and may never see again. The Govna will be your shepherd and your guide on a journey of miraculous discovery through the world of the strange, the weird, bizarre, odd and the unusual.
We’re mavericks, trail blazers, rebels, rule breakers, outlaws…true uninhibited artists. We deliver our message through sideshow, and fuel our art through passion. Named after the most successful Broadway musical and movie from the late 30’s and 40’s, Hellzapoppin is a world renown theatrical circus thrill-show where some of the deadliest stunts in live entertainment are performed to loud crowd-pleasing musical tracks.
You might have seen Hellzapoppin’s feature performer The LIZARD MAN’s life-sized wax figure featured inside Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museums all over the world. The Lizard Man is a self-made FREAK tattooed from head to toe with green scales complete with a split tongue and implanted horns on his head and arms. He’s appeared on TV shows all over the world and is known for his amazing sword swallowing skills!
You’ll witness with your own eyes the world’s most amazing half-man, Short E. Dangerously (aka Shorty). That’s right, he’s a half man cut in half at the waist and walks bare-handed on broken shards of glass while on fire. Shorty is featured in the new Texas Hippie Coalition video (Moonshine). You can also find Shorty in a 2 page spread inside the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not book, Shatter Your Senses! Ripley’s also has a wax figure of Shorty on exhibit in Ripley’s all over the world. He is also featured on Ripley’s brand new international TV show (seen on Travel Channel).
You’ll see the pain-proof strong man Mr. Eric Ross (featured on Ellen). Eric is a world renown magician and sideshow performer. He performs death defying stunts live on stage known as the Fakir act. He takes long skewers and shoves them right through his biceps, the palm of his hands and even the mandible which is located directly underneath his tongue and out his throat (no blood, no pain).
Last but not least, you’re going to see the beautiful talented sideshow starlet, Willow Lauren. Willow is an illusionist and will perform the bladebox of death, she also eats fire along side the Govna. She even eats and regurgitates razor blades and she’ll even pull a lifesaver out of her throat before your very eyes!
