A sideshow is an extra secondary production associated with a circus.

Old time sideshows were a mix of:

  • physical features different than normal
  • exotic animals
  • physical talents

At one time, a sideshow was the only way many disabled persons could earn a living.

any history here?

how about the 1960s where people tried to 'free' the performers at sideshows because they did not like people singling out 'freaks of nature'?
