The Pillar Room, The Rotunda Hospital, Dublin 1

Travel back with us to a time when gentlemen wore top hats, ladies wore corsets and mobile phones were steam powered – a time when the Freak Show dominated in all its odd and shocking glory!

Squirm in your seats as our Orchestra of Oddities thrill, shock and entertain in equal measure.

Bleedin' Deadly - Bram Stoker Festival's flagship evening event (strictly over 18's) - will run for 4 nights only in the iconic Pillar Room, Rotunda Hospital: October 28 - 31 2016.

Hosted by The Space Cowboy – extreme performance artist and 44 time world record holder – the Bleedin’ Deadly line up includes the World’s most pierced woman Elaine Davidson, Coney Island’s side show impresario Donny Vomit, snake charmer and burlesque reptile queen Kitty LeRoux and local bizarrio Grim Squeaker!

See Australia's internationally renowned sword swallow The Space Cowboy perform some of his death defying stunts including ingesting a 2000v neon lightbulb, catching a flaming arrow while blindfolded and his unmissable weight lifting eyelids!

The human pincushion 'Elaine Davidson' has adorned her body with over 9000 piercings which weigh in excess of 3kgs. This Brazilian born former nurse not only is the world record holder for body piercing, but has now achieved a new Guinness Record for 'The person holding the piercing record for the longest time' (since 2000.). With over 192 piercings on her facial area alone, Elaine says "People often just want to look at me or touch me - some even want to kiss me"!

Meet Coney Island's freakshow frontman Donny Vomit who has made a living by hammering nails into his skull. His tattoo - "A hard way to make an easy living" - pays homage to the long tradition of Human Blockhead at Coney Island which was created in 1930. Also an escapologist, his performance will feature some heavy hardware - chainsaws, a straitjacket, a mouse trap and a bed of nails!

Introducing Ireland's sizzling sideshow couple - burlesque snake charmer Miss Kitty Le Roux and local bizarrio Grim Squeaker. The striking green haired belle Kitty Le Roux is known as the Reptile Queen with her menagerie of 12 exotic reptilian beauties - 7 snakes, 3 lizards, 1 gecko and 1 tortoise. Beautiful, deadly and cold blooded, this cabaret snake charmer extraordinaire is not to be missed.
