A FILM BY GARY BEEBER
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!"
