About FreakShow & Tell

"FreakShow & Tell" is a critically acclaimed one-man show that blends science, freakshow, and storytelling into a 70 minute journey that is unlike any other. Thom Britton is one of the world's most unique fire eaters. He 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. You will not believe what you see.

"FreakShow & Tell" was originally performed in 2006, in Chicago at a small cafe and theater. The reception was.... well, not great. Fantastic reviews, but a low audience turnout almost killed the project right away. The show was remounted about a year later, and the results were amazing! Shows were sold out and 'standing room only' for months! Since then, "FreakShow & Tell" has been performed to great success and is still a critical darling!

“Hopefully the audience will understand not just HOW I eat fire, but WHY I wanted to learn to eat fire.”
