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.
His one-man show breaks circus acts — such as fire swallowing — down to bare bones physics.
That is unbelievable!
...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!
