The Circus of Horrors, The Lyric Theatre. Shaftsbury Ave. London, Every Monday between 28th Oct – 16th Dec 2013
The last couple of years has seen the profile of The Circus of Horrors jump tremendously after storming into the finals of Britain’s Got Talent & then appearances on various subsequent TV shows, The X Factor, The Slammer, Daybreak, Fairground Attractions, Who wants to be a Millionaire, Body Shockers & Fake Reaction…
This combined with the release of my book Mud Blood & Glitter have certainly made it an exciting time for The Circus of Horrors. The media profile as I’m sure you have noticed is continuing with large editorial & images in almost every nation newspaper & an further appearance on This Morning & more pending TV shows including a Discovery Channel special.
The live shows too, from last years incarnation The Ventriloquist & its sequel The Curse of the Devil Doll proved extremely successful both artistically & commercially with almost every venue showing an increase in sales of between 10% & 20%, pretty amazing in these times of austerity.
The tour from October onwards will see another giant leap for the show when we begin a series of dates in The Lyric theatre in London’s West End, a fitting way to celebrate 18 bloody years of Shock n’ Roll, and once gain proving you can take the extreme to the mainstream without compromise. In addition to the London date’s we will be engaging in a huge British tour, taking in over 90 venue’s in pretty well all of the UK’s major cities from Aberdeen to Truro.
Ever since it’s conception at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival the show has toured the World achieving cult status and dragging circus screaming and shouting into the 21st century and beyond.
The new sensation is inspired by the legendary & sinister lost movie ‘London after Midnight’ and is packed with new shocks will take you on a whirlwind journey though a plague ridden London in 1665 & culminating during the great fire of London in 1666.
The story will twist & turn as 5 murder’s are committed in various London landmarks, each one becoming more & more horrific and all intermingled with some of the greatest, most daring, bizarre & beautiful circus acts on earth.
From sword swallowers to dare devil balancing acts, from hair hangers to demon dwarfs, from a pickled person to astounding Ariel acts, all performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek by my an almighty cast & the rock n’ roll driven Dr Haze & The Interceptors from Hell.
If Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Du Soleil then you would be only half way there.
