What happens in a throwback circus such as this? Von Geiger's strongman deeds include lifting an anchor using fish hooks in his eyelids, while Valenz, who claims to be the grand-nephew of early rocker Richie Valens, climbs a machete ladder with the greatest of ease; Lucy offers hinky hijinx of the barely clothed variety. And the museum features such items as a stuffed mongoose and cobra in mid-battle, shrunken heads, and something hideous that's rumored to be P.T. Barnum's long-lost Feejee mermaid.
The show begins at 9 p.m. at 3 Kings, 60 South Broadway, and admission is $7; visit www.facebook.com/thecircusemporiumroadshow or call 3 Kings at 303-777-7352 for information.
