'Freakshow': Get to Know the Unique Cast of AMC's New Reality SeriesBritt Hayes |
AMC's latest reality series, 'Freakshow,' premieres tonight, and we've got everything you need to know about these very interesting performers.
'Freakshow' is the newest reality series from AMC, following the unique and unconventional performers of Todd Ray's Venice Beach Freakshow. Ray features eccentric performers with unusual physical traits and strange artifacts from around the world. Ray also holds the Guinness world record for the largest collection of two-headed animals. Ray and his family (some biological, some figurative) refuse to conform to societal norms and embrace being different. Says Ray, "Every single one of us, by virtue of our individuality, is an oddity. We're each a freak: a freak of the universe, but a 'freak' meaning the most special, the most unique, the most magical creatures in the universe."
And they are pretty special. In the video below we're introduced to the family of the Venice Beach Freakshow, each with their own special qualities they use to entertain curious visitors. Asia Ray, Todd's daughter, is a 20 year old fire-eater and charter member of the troupe. Amazing Ali is usually the first face visitors see when they enter the Freakshow -- standing at just three feet, five inches high, she's a warm and friendly introduction to the show. Brianna Belladonna is billed as the "Indestructible Woman," and holds two records in sword-swallowing. Marcus "The Creature" is covered in tattoos and piercings -- most of which he did himself.
You can get to know these guys -- and more -- better in the video below, and be sure to check out 'Freakshow' when it premieres tonight on AMC at 9:30/8:30 central.
