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.

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.
