Science + History + Insanity
chicago, il, 60626
Thom Britton's personal, one man show about his history with the Freakshow. Blending science and storytelling into a 80 minute journey on the stage.
One of my favorite guests.
It’s the Velvet Underground of vaudeville
...Britton has traded classic sideshow glitz for a lab coat and a personable demeanor.
Your shows is the entertainment of the century!
He’ll eat fire, walk on glass, absorb a million volts for your amusement.
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.
...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!
That is unbelievable!
You Need Nerves of Steel and a Bit of Science to Eat Fire
What makes Thom very special, is that he wants to explain it all to you.
Thom is one of the most creative, intelligent performers I know
His one-man show breaks circus acts — such as fire swallowing — down to bare bones physics.
You helped inspire thousands...
