Jeffrey Matlock of Octane Photographic filmed one of my last big shows for the season up at the Crofoot in Pontiac on October 25th. To the left was the flat joint (wheel of fortune for their car giveaway that could have been hung flat against a wall) and to the right was an adult variation of ring toss as part of an evil carnival themed section that earned tickets to spin the wheel. My sideshow was there because the special events coordinator thought would scare and entertain the attendees.
Acts performed include glass walking, baton twirling (Krystine practiced for about 2 years and Rachel used to be a majorette), bladewalking, the 100 ft tie / escapology, the human blockhead, swinging a bottle with a piercing, and the can smash.
Due to illness, I decided to not eat a lightbulb or regurgitate razorblades. Adding in those acts would have brought the show to roughly 30 minutes, as opposed to 18 minutes. The plan for the spring is to have a third cast member, Nizzle the Piercer, available as a talker and for his piercing expertise. Of course, that would change the nature of the show from a bloodless show to one where a little blood might happen. I personally prefer a bloodless show since not bleeding when faced with something that typically causes massive amounts of bleeding seems a bit more impressive without any blood during the entire show.
Rachel was asked to dress like a club-going kitty for a "disobedience" skit that could not be performed fully due to the loudness of the club. In such a skit, she would be asked to perform various feats one might expect to see in a traditional animal act, but, like a cat, refuse to obey any request except to "be cute". She would also be interviewed, but only respond with meowing. "Barnum" the Siberian Tiger is thrown at her for her own and the audience's amusement.
The constant "see Rachel's pussy" is a variation on the classic cat tattoo on the inner thigh. (The male version is a rooster in a noose just below the knee). I kind of like Robin Marks a bit too much.
My mask was made by NooMoon/Pain Tribe. Dan, their leader, is a fan of my show. My costume is in complete contrast to Rachel... covered and mysterious to create a sense of authority while keeping me warm since the weather was seasonably cold as opposed to unseasonably warm. Also, I wanted to hide my tongue split until the right time.
