|Tinderbox Circus Sideshow|
Captain Darron von Awesome of Tinderbox Circus Sideshow got his start in the dark foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, scaring college students with his inane stunts and freakish knowledge of circus and sideshow history, but it wasn't until a chance run in with Miss Trashique D'Lamour and Bernard Ballyhoo that Tinderbox Circus Sideshow was born! The trio quickly began organizing and subsequently disorganizing all they knew, and soon were sharing the stage with local legends and nobodies alike. While gaining fame with their local followers, they added the incredible talent, incredible masochism, and incredible hair of Luscious Peter, and the magic that is the Tinderbox Circus Sideshow came to fruition! Now the four spend their time scheming, plotting, and planning to dislodge one's stomach contents and leave one screaming for more with their wild collection of the greatest hits of madness, as well as their hilarious insanity.
Tinderbox Circus Sideshow is a mad mix of everything icky in entertainment. From Captain Darron von Awesome's disturbing and hilarious banter, Trashique D'Lamour's alluring madness, to Luscious Peter strutting around the stage, each and every member of Tinderbox brings something a little different, something a little new, and something vile and disgusting to the table. 1
Tinderbox Circus Sideshow's audition in Episode 707 consisted of dropping a bowling ball onto someone lying on a bed of nails, throwing a dart on one's unprotected back, and attempting to break a cinderblock on top of one's head. Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel buzzed the act. Stern and at least one other judge voted "No," eliminating the act from the competition.
