INSECTAVORA

A FILM BY GARY BEEBER

 

STARRING INSECTAVORA

WITH:  DICK ZIGUN

AARON BEEBE, SCOTT BAKER

BAMBI THE MERMAID

I first met fire eater Insectavora in 2007 when she was performing  at the Coney Island Circus Side Show in Brooklyn.  She was not just a run of the mill fire-eater, she was able to do remarkable things with fire.  In this film we learn about Insectavora's beginnings, what it takes to be a fire eater and a few tricks of the trade.

 

Also appearing in this film are some of the other habitués of Coney Island.  There's Dick Zigun, unofficial mayor of Coney Island, Queen of Coney Island Bambi the Mermaid, Burlesque superstar Miss Dirty Martini, sword swallower the Great Fredini and of course legendary geek performer and outside talker, Scott Baker.

 

Fire eating is a dangerous profession, but as Insectavora says "it's so cool!"
