PT Barnum's Freak Show PT Barnum 1810-1891

history of PT Barnum's freak show...

Raven Red-clash's curator insight, April 1, 2013 10:22 PM

PT Barnum's Freak Show was an exhibition of extraordinary people with abnormal abilities. This spectacle both satisified the curiosity of the bizarre, and entertained the masses. The innate curiosity to witness the strange, the abnormal, and perhaps even the controversial was equally shared among vaudeville performances as well as the circus; where people could showcase their abnormalities. This previously offensive exhibition would then be applauded and considered socially acceptable if not extraordinary.

Laura Graham Fetters's insight:

This website about clown school  is an interesting topic related to P.T. Bartnum. Though he did not work much with clowns, his work with circuses laid a foundation for other circus acts. Today, clowns are a major part of circus life.

War of the Worlds A liitle history of Oct 30, 1938 The new power of mass media

War of the Worlds A liitle history of Oct 30, 1938 The new power of mass media | P.T. BARNUM | Scoop.it

"It is perhaps a comment on the idiocy of human beings that one of the biggest hoaxes to panic the American public began with the following words:"The Columbia Broadcasting System and its affiliated stations present Orson Welles and the Mercury Theatre on the Air in a radio play by Howard Koch suggested by the H.G. Wells novel 'The War of the Worlds.'"

On the face of it, this seems like a pretty straightforward concept. It's a radio play, based on a novel, featuring one of the most recognized voices in the history of radio.

AND IT WAS THE DAY BEFORE HALLOWEEN!"

PT Barnum had one back in the 1800's, in fact he had several, but most were monkey heads sewn onto fish carcasses, but one of the mermaids is a match for the one recently discovered by scientists.
