Squidling Brothers

Philadelphia, PA

Sideshow and Circus

The SQUIDLING BROTHERS are an international collective of circus sideshow performers from Philadelphia, Berlin and New York.  Founded by JELLY BOY (clown of danger and science) & MATTERZ SQUIDLING (the impenetrable music man). Combining their feats of wonder, skill, and comedy, the show gives audiences a fast-paced, high-risk, unforgettable experience. Taking from the American Carnival and Theater of the Absurd traditions, The Squidling Brothers have mutated the classic and the modern to create a style all their own. Since hitting the road in 2008, they have toured continuously coast to coast in the United States and overseas to countries suchas: Holland, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden, England, Ireland, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Austria, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Israel, and Japan. They have headlined the Coney Island Rockabilly Festival, performed at Theatre Bizarre (the largest Halloween party in North America), Lagunitas Brewing Company’s Beer Circus in Chicago, and Sadistic Circus in Toyko, Japan. Over the years they have shared the stage with rock bands Primus and the Exploited; as well as traveled with the Swing Shift Sideshow out of Las Vegas and Pain Solution from Norway.
