THESE PERFORMERS COULD FIT ON THE HEAD OF A PIN

Victorian-style flea circuses first appeared in Europe in the early 19th century, and gradually became less common as we entered the modern age. Professional clown Adam Gertsacov keeps the amazing curiosity alive with entomological entertainment that dazzles, disgusts and confuses his audience. His tiny performers are real fleas -- human-blood sucking fleas. But they are also real performers, racing on chariots, balancing on a tightrope and being shot out of a cannon. Gertsacov uses a high-powered microscope and tweezers to coax his little big top stars to do their magical feats. And Midge and Madge happily oblige, as long as they are fed a few drops of Gertsacov's blood. (This is too ludicrous and perversely fascinating to miss, folks!)-- R. Howkins
