This and the others with Johnny with a painted face are from a Carnival show in Omaha, NE in early 2009.  He and an amateur group of theatrical “sideshow” performers wowed the crowds with exhibitions of fire, sideshow, and other related acts, and wandered the crowds in costume and makeup to entertain them from within.

(In case anyone asks:  yes, it does really hurt.)

While opening for a band in Des Moines, IA, Johnny allowed himself to be staplegunned, walked on broken glass, and swallowed everything from swords to glo-sticks for the crowd’s general amusement.
