Captain Darron von Awesome, the sideshow extraordinaire, began his journey onto the stage at the ripe young age of 8 years old. Throughout his life he performed music, theater, and comedy, until finding his way into the sideshow arts in 2002, at the age of 18. In the following 8 years he not only taught himself a wide variety of acts, but also put his knowledge of bizarre stunts to use impressing friends, winning bets, and scoring free beer at parties. In 2010, Captain Darron teamed up with his sister, Trashique, to form the Tinderbox Circus Sideshow, and ever since, the two have been bringing their strange and unusual take on the classic carnival 10-in-1 sideshow to venues and audiences all over the country.
