The biography of a kid, born and
raised in the carnival business, who relates some funny and
interesting stories about a talker and a geek, gaffed-up freaks,
croaked games, rip-offs, raids by the police, 'Hey Rubes', a three
hundred pound gorilla who thought a carnie strip-tease dancer was
his mother, a sex-wise orang-utan plus much, much more!
A rollicking, real life story of
carnival life that moves from the 1920s through to the 1960s.
William 'Fats' Usher tells it like it
was, from his early years to the present, via a series of bawdy,
mischievous, humorous, heart-warming, revealing and sometimes risqué
stories of life on the midway!
A reading must for anyone who ever
worked on or visited a carnival midway.
