Sideshow: Alive on the Inside

Overview

Sideshow: Alive on the Inside delves into the lives of former "freaks" who populated the sideshows of carnivals for years, until their treatment was deemed inhumane. This production, however, takes a somewhat different perspective. Rather than a scathing exposé, it offers insight into what happened in the performers' lives off-stage rather than on.

Overview

Sideshow: Alive on the Inside delves into the lives of former "freaks" who populated the sideshows of carnivals for years, until their treatment was deemed inhumane. This production, however, takes a somewhat different perspective. Rather than a scathing exposé, it offers insight into what happened in the performers' lives off-stage rather than on. There's Jeanie Tomaini, who, born with nothing below her waist, was known as the "Half-Woman," and Percilla, or "Monkey Girl," whose entire body is covered in hair. Both of these women married their co-workers -- human giants -- and led relatively normal lives outside of their profession. Also included is a wide variety of archival footage, which features old-time sideshow attractions such as Zip the Pinheaded Man, Siamese twins, the Human Pincushion, bearded ladies, and many more.

    Outstanding Documentary!

    This video offers the best and widest range of knowledge regarding the sideshow world. Very informative and human. This video not only takes you behind the scenes of the sideshow itself, but into the lives of those who lived it. I highly reccomend this video to ANYONE who has an interest in the Sideshow Arts.
