There are circuses, and then there are circuses. For what that's worth, Circus Emporium, which brings its roadshow and Museum of Oddities to 3 Kings Tavern tonight, falls into the latter, more overtly gruesome category. Here are a few of our favorite oddities from the sideshow, direct from Coney Island.
