FreakShow & Tell

The Madman of mad science!

 
Britton is a charismatic performer who appears genuinely thrilled to share how simple his seemingly death-defying acts really are.

FreakShow & Tell?

At 16 years old I began to see sideshow acts and started to perform in a circus. I learned a variety of skills and performed about 12 times a day, 7 days a week. It was a wonderful and exhausting practice.

In my early 20s, I decided to continue my education. I went to college and earned an Applied Sciences degree. This training is nothing special, but it feeds my love of science and makes me ask the question, "how does that work?"

The acts I have chosen for you this evening are the creme de la creme, the very best and most interesting experiments I've had the pleasure of learning and performing.

 
FreakShow & Tell at TedX
 

One of the world's most unique fire eaters. Thom Britton blends stand-up comedy, storytelling and danger into an act that is 10,000 years old and brand new - at the same time.

But, the show isn't just fire eating!

Over 100,000 volts of electricity, nails, chainsaws and broken glass are playthings for Thom Britton in FreakShow & Tell.

Fire eating, glass walking and hundreds of thousands of volts of electricity collide with comedy and storytelling in this one-of-a-kind show.

Well, The Chicago Reader LOVED IT!

Sideshow entertainer Thom Britton’s solo show is part performance, part demonstration. Britton is a charismatic performer who appears genuinely thrilled to share how simple his seemingly death-defying acts really are. His explanations are peppered with jokes and carnival flair, making even the dullest details memorable and entertaining. I may have retained more information about science and history during a single carnival-themed night than in all my years of schooling.

He’ll eat fire, walk on glass, absorb a million volts for your amusement.
— Chicago Sun-Times
His one-man show breaks circus acts — such as fire swallowing — down to bare bones physics.
— DNA info
That is unbelievable!
— Melody Mendez, Good Day Chicago Anchor
...a show unlike any other — part lecture, part story and part physics lesson, Thom Britton had everyone on the edge of their seats. The best part? Getting a lesson on how to eat fire!
