The apparent displacement of a celestial body.

Contorting his body into impossible positions, Parallax demonstrates a variety of perplexing skills including: extreme twisting, escape artistry and enterology (getting into confined spaces such as an 18-gallon box, tennis racquet, toilet seat, and anything humans are not supposed to get into) In a self-invented act which he terms "de-escape," he gets into a locked strait-jacket, chains himself up, and then crams himself into an 18" x 18" box. Parallax holds a Guinness World Record for his de-escape act! He has appeared with numerous well-known sideshows as well as notable television appearances on Penn & Teller's Sin City Spectacular, The Roseanne Show, Real TV, Beyond Bizarre, and Guinness World Records Prime Time - to name a few!

The fourth state of matter,
consisting of hot and highly ionized gas

Plasmar is the original Danger Boy with nerves of steel and the spectacular precision of a neuro-surgeon. The press has called his Juicy Danger Show — "A combination of circus, vaudeville, and demolition derby," "a pyromaniac's wet dream," and "decadent, dangerous, obnoxious." Plasmar combines showy chainsaw, lawnmower, and blowtorch skills and amputation-defying homespun antics like "How to stop and industrial fan with your tongue" or "Everything you wanted to know about drinking liquid dish soap while smashing your digits with canned food."
"Be dazzled, be agog, be showered with lettuce and the intestines of soft toys" ... as you unnervingly view the world's maddest artist. Be careful where you sit!

An object or person of rare excellence

"JEWELS" is that girl your mother always warned you about: A bad girl who plays with fire; a voodoo doll who sticks pins in herself; a free spirit who won't be tied down, tied up, chained or restrained (well, not for long anyway). She's a whip-cracking wisecracking wild child who plays with some very dangerous toys.
