Media Release: Extreme circus rolls into Edinburgh

Extreme circus

SWORD swallowers, jugglers and daredevils have joined forces for one of the most outrageous shows at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

Direct from California, a celebration of hilarious antics, visual delights and unbelievable magic hits Edinburgh this August as the Freedom Family Circus rolls into town.

Award-winning jugglers, outrageous clowns and outstanding dancers join forces for a fun-filled interactive show for all ages.

It’s a jaw-dropping, knee-slapping, double-taking, laugh-out-loud display of outrageous comedy for all ages.

Every performance is a new experience. Unpredictable and charming, you can’t help but run away with them.

When the sun goes down, however, out come the freaks, wonders and curiosities, as they gather for a panorama of the weird, the strange, the odd and the unusual.

See the human blockhead drive a nail into his head!

See the electric girl withstand 500,000 volts of electricity!

See the beautiful burlesque dancing girls!

Spikes, sledgehammers, electricity, animal traps, broken glass, fire and water torture will kick-start the outrageous escapades of the human marvels.

Seeing is believing!

The show features an array of performers from across the USA, including the stars of America’s Got Talent – The Cut Throat Freak Show.

The group also plan to install a traditional American sideshow in the lobby of the Point Hotel, featuring a display of Coney Island oddities and curiosities never before seen in Scotland, including shrunken heads and two-headed swans.
