The thing about freak shows is that they make it really easy to find the freaks. On the first Saturday of every month, Phoenix has its very own aberrant act -- the KARN EVIL Strange & Unusual Carnival Freak Show. The shock fest features the deviant antics of Dr. Reverend Stephen D. F. Strange, Mother Fakir and The Strange Family Circus, Page the Village Idiot, and the Cut Throat Freak Show. The perverse performers participate in self-inflicted bondage, lighting themselves on fire, hammering nails into their own heads, and even snacking on light bulbs.
First Saturday of every month, 9 p.m., 2007
