Description by

Here you will see Lionel the Lion-Faced Man, Otis the Frog Boy, Jeanie the Half-Girl, the Human Torso, the "What Is It?" and more than fifty other legendary sideshow acts. From P. T. Barnum's American Museum in New York City - where he showcased bearded ladies, "Siamese" twins, "wild men," giants, and dwarves - to the traveling oddity museums linked to circuses and carnivals, to a whole new generation of "carny kids," the public has always been fascinated with the strange, fantastic, and misunderstood world of the sideshow attraction. This anthology pulls back the curtain on scores of the most famous sideshow celebrities of all time, revealing the astounding, the curious, and the very, very unusual.
