Behind the Scenes at AMC’s Freakshow

FreaksThe world’s funkiest beach just got freaky. Whether you’re biking from Santa Monica, walking to your favorite beach-side restaurant, or going to pump some iron, look out for the mysterious building offering a view into a world of freaks. Part museum, part live show, the Venice Beach Freakshow has lured not only brave beach goers, but producers from AMC. The show airs Thursday nights at 9:30 pm on AMC, but what’s better than watching on television? Watching it live, of course!

Freaks1Watch your step or you could bump into a man covered in piercings and tattoos and holding a 5-legged dog. “The Creature” is the first African-American body modification artist in freak show history.

Bizarre stories and artifacts offer you a moment of reprieve in the museum, but the live show takes the cake. Amazing Ali, a woman the size of a yard stick, welcomes you before a man named Morgue swallows a sword.
