After seeing the Jim Rose Circus in the summer of 2002, John Chaos was hooked on the limelight. Everyone has a calling and this was the voice calling out to him. It was louder than ever and telling him to be a freak. To join the ranks of the greats and be a sideshow performer; “The Freak of the 21st Century”, John Chaos strives to bring the old sideshow ways to a brand new generation of the masses. Pushing himself to learn as much as possible about his chosen art form, John Chaos believes there are NO limits to achieving his goal. The goal of not only entertaining the populace, but educating the world that no brain… no pain.

At a John Chaos show you can witness these amazing acts: Hammering nails into his face only to be followed by the daring feat and danger of a drill. Walking on broken glass and using it as a cousin between the ground and someone else’s body. Strait Jackets, animal traps of all types and throwing darts are all props you’ll see used in ways you never thought possible at a John Chaos show. Where has he learned his craft? By working with the greats of course! The Jim Rose Circus, The Bizzaro Future Circus, and Circus della Morte. Even performing on the streets of Europe and various cities in the United States including Dallas, TX, Las Vegas, and Tulsa, OK.

John Chaos has spared no venue of his special brand of talent. Want to see what all of the buzz is on this modern freak? Then step inside and have a look around…
