Freaks in the frame

“The Freaks are coming back to Coney Island this weekend for the annual Congress of Curious Peoples, An Amazing Collection of Human Marvels, a event of performances, exhibitions and films by 21st century sideshow artists until 18 April. This year, however, the show will be combined with the Congress FOR Curious Peoples, a spectacle of events including a two-day symposium, a five-day lecture series and Super Freak Weekend, with appearances by sideshow alumni The Great Fredini and Eak the Geek. While plenty of scholarly learning is encouraged, the curious conference isn’t forgetting its raucous roots and tonight’s opening night party promises “cheap beer and drinking games” as five nominees are inducted into the Freak Hall of Fame “in a drunken celebration of Coney Island madness”.
