Since American Horror Story: Freak Show came dancing maniacally onto our TV screens, there's been a resurgence of fascination in the ancient art of the Freak Show.

So many of the performers in the American Horror Story: Freak Show are based on real life, but there are still a bunch of people keeping the art alive.

Fortunately, the 'freaks' these days have more empowerment, more fun and more respect than a lot of the ridiculed figures of the past - a sad truth that's reflected in American Horror Story.

Check out the modern Freak Show - the Circus of Horrors...

The performers

The Circus of Horrors has toured worldwide, even performing on stage with Alice Cooper, Motley Crue, and Marilyn Manson!

Jesús Aceves

Aceves, or 'The Wolfman' is originally from Zacatecas, Mexico. He is the second member of his family to be born with the condition hypertrichosis.

Insane Stunts!

Let's hope this ends better than Dandy Mott's saw-the-woman-in-half trick!

---------------------------------------

The Girl in a Bottle

Performers like Danielle Martin contort to fit into tiny spaces. She's not afraid of a little claustrophobia, then...

---------------------------------------

Extreme pain and pointy things!

This man sticks lots of sharp things into his face, just for your amusement!
