Highlighted by the Discovery Channel and Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, the troupe combines the bizarre talents of the Govna (a tattooed, fire-breathing, glass-eating ringleader with a background in both the entertainment industry and “high-rise window cleaning”); Short E. Dangerously (a three-foot, three-inch “half man” who walks on his hands and just might “blow your mind and steal your wife”); Nik Sin (a three-foot-tall escape artist who’s known for his Mini Marilyn Manson act — not to mention appearances on The Celebrity Apprentice, Portlandia and The Jerry Springer Show); Eric Ross (a street magician and “human blockhead” who specializes in piercing his hand, jaw and bicep with a steel skewer); and The Lizardman (a body-modification enthusiast and Guinness World Record holder who fronts the band Lizard Skynyrd and is versed in devouring insects, flesh-hook suspension and the “cranial corkscrew”). A suggestion from the Govna, his “band of gypsies” and his French bulldog Mr. Buggles: consider “locking up your daughters, sisters, wives, what have you, because they just might run away with the circus.”
$11, Wed Nov. 28, 8pm, The Rock Box, 1223 E. Houston St., (210) 255-3833, therockboxsa.com.
