This award winning show of comedy, sideshow stunts, western arts, mentalism and magic has been featured around the world. The FreakShow Family - a real family of four amazing performers who have appeared on television and live events in the United States and abroad, is returning to the Delta Fair again.
The two youngest performers:14-year-old Grennan (the Green Monster) and his 11-year-old sister, Charlotte (La Pequeña Arañita), have appeared together on NBC’s America’s Got Talent and Steve Harvey’s Little Big Shots, as well as Little Big Shots Australia and the German television show, Superkids. Grennan still holds his title as “World’s Youngest Professional Knife Thrower,” while Charlotte maintains her mantle as “The Bravest Little Girl On Four Continents.”
Patriarch and show founder, Reverend Tommy Gunn, and his partner, Miss mAlice Aforethought, are not only amazing showpeople in their own rights, but also proud parents who are excited about what their children have achieved.
“Grennan first officially performed an act on stage when he was four,” says Gunn. “By seven he was throwing knives, and television came calling. Charlotte was at a show on her first day home after being born. She really has talent -they have sawdust in their blood.”
THE FREAKSHOW FAMILY SHOW was picked as the Performance of the Weekend at the 2018 Southern Sideshow Hootenanny in New Orleans, Louisiana.
“Grennan and Charlotte really earned that award,” their mother, Miss mAlice, beams with pride. “They just took over the stage and owned it. They showed everyone how it is done.”
Gunn and Aforethought have also appeared on stages and television screens all over the country. From live shows in Coney Island in Brooklyn, NY; to the Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA; to the Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis, SD (where they also appeared on its television show); plus television shows on NBC, MTV, the Discovery Channel and more. Recently, Gunn appeared on CBS’s The Late Late Show with James Corden. They are excited to return to Memphis and the Delta Fair.
“We have always loved being in Memphis and being a part of the Delta Fair,” Gunn says. “The whole family is thrilled to return for the 2019 Fair - and we are looking forward to premiering some new stunts to some great audiences!”
