A trio of circus freakshow performers, combining their feats of wonder, skill, and comedy; The SQUIDLING BROTHERS Circus Sideshow features JELLY BOY THE CLOWN (emcee / clown of danger and science), VELVET CRAYON (crippled song and dance man), & FIBI EYEWALKER (fire eating, sword swallowing, dragon-lunged lady). The bizarre combination of these three characters give audiences a fast-paced, high-risk, unforgettable experience. Taking from the American Carnival and Theatre of the Absurd traditions, The Squidling Brothers have mutated the classic and the modern to create a style all their own.
These three Squidlings have been traveling around the world together for two years. Based out of Philadelphia, they have performed coast to coast in America; and across the Atlantic to Germany, Norway, Ireland, Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Poland, and Czech Republic.
The Squidling Brothers have headlined the Coney Island Rockabilly Festival, opened for the rock band Primus, and shared the stage with the famous punk rock band Exploited at the Opatijske Barufe Music Festival in Croatia.
They have also been featured on television programs such as AMC's Freakshow Season 2, Oddities San Francisco, featured on the national news in Holland for the world famous Hanky Panky Tattoo Museum, and on various local news programs all around the world.
Off the stage the Squidlings have produced and released a sideshow horror film (Freakshow Apocalypse), a documentary about Jelly Boy's return to the stage after being rescued from a house fire (A Clown's Recovery), and a Velvet Crayon album (Koala Vs Squid Pt 1).
Over the winter the Squidling Brothers are focusing on a five part film series of their Philadelphia based Carnivolution (a story-based stage show combining circus acts, puppets, and animation). Velvet Crayon is working on a new music album titled "Ampersand Imperfecta". Jelly Boy the Clown is working on a magical realist novel about his adventures as a clown in the world of the carnival. As a collective they are planning various traveling shows which will launch simultaneously in America and Europe this summer.
