Our Host: Tommy Breen
Tommy Breen quit his job to join the carnival and live his dream of being a professional sword swallower. «The King of the Sideshow», Ward Hall, taught Breen how to be a Front Talker, and he has been traveling with the World of Wonders show ever since. For the last 13 years the show has taken him across the country driving stakes, wrangling snakes, decapitating showgirls in the Guillotine Illusion, and getting coffee for fire eating pygmies. He has been seen at state fairs with the World of Wonders, in clubs with The 999 Eyes, on The Travel Channel's American Sideshow, and is excited to host a night of sideshow superstars at the 4th Annual Southern Sideshow Hootenanny!

Give the man enough rope, and he can do… just about anything. World Champion trick roper Chris McDaniel brings the charm of the Wild West everywhere he roams. This 2-time world record holder for bullwhips uses his special skills, comedy, and cowboy songs to wrangle up a great time for audiences across the US, internationally from Bali to Moscow, and during his frequent guest performances at 5-star resorts in Mexico. His wild west act started at Opryland many years ago and since then this consummate showman has also been seen on The Late Show With David Letterman, on NBC’s Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris and Reba McEntire and Steve Harvey’s Little Big Shots: Forever Young, in two Broadway national tours, and in his original one man show «Ropes, Whips, and Songs About Cows», which debuted to rave reviews. His contributions to the variety arts won him the Historical Circus Society's Candlelight Award at the Sideshow Gathering.
