Audience Reviews for American Carny: True Tales From the Circus Sideshow

½

Not a history, but a story that chronicles what kind of personalities and people inhabit the Circus Sideshows. It nicely outlines the actual lives behind it, even if it skimps on actual day-to-day details. It reads like a biography, not necessarily a documentary.
