These people / sites you should check out, for one reason or another.
If you're looking to learn sideshow acts, before you consider asking El Lurchio to teach you, know that if it's water spouting or regurgitation you want to learn, it's going to be a no, unless you have a great reason for him to teach you. For any other acts, it's worth contacting Harley Newman via his site below. El Lurchio had one of Harley's students working for him, it was his first run of performances, and Harley's student was great.
