There are certain people that you share things in life with. There is no one that has shared as much with me as Kevin Gene Holman. We have shared tens of thousands of road miles, hundreds of thousands of nautical miles, and over 1.5 million sky miles. Thousands of stages and over a million audience members. Six domiciles and countless cabins. A similar sense of humor, and far more catch phrases than I can remember. And perhaps, the most important, a passion to make people laugh and enjoy themselves. In all of that time, he has taught me so much. But first, let us go back. You might ask, “How did I meet Kevin the Great?” I was about 14 years old and had been juggling and riding unicycles for about a year, when one day before school, I saw Kevin and his troupe “Darn,...Read more 0 comments

The Rotten Brothers got our start at St. Louis Six Flags and we’re incredibly grateful to have returned for several years. We wanted to share a little love that we’ve received since our first side show performance there in 2000. The Rotten Bros. fans in this city are our favorite for a reason. For those that don’t know, The Rotten Brothers have an incredible love for St. Louis and the fans at Six Flags Theme Park. The Rotten Bros received our first big break in 2000 when Six Flags St. Louis hired us to create an all-ages, edgy side show.

Since 2011, The Rotten Brothers show has returned to Fright Fest at Six Flags St. Louis and we can’t begin to express just how much we love this...Read more 0 comments
Magic is what started it all. David Copperfield’s TV specials began in ’77. I don’t know how young I was when I first saw him but I knew I wanted to know more. Needed to know. But even before that my big sister got a magic set as a gift. It was a pretty big one. She went to her room and practiced and then put on a show for me. I was baffled, and a little mad at my sister. She hid the set and I didn’t see it for a long time. One rainy day I went to the family game closet, yeah it was Beaver Cleaver and awesome, and when I opened the doors there was the magic set. I quickly opened it to find no instructions. There were all the treasures but no map to create them. I thought the plastic...Read more 0 comments
When people find out I’m a sword swallower many questions run through their mind but the one that comes out of their mouth is normally, “How did you decide to do that?” Sure, I understand. I’m a normal enough looking guy. But looks can be deceiving. The truth is I was raised very sheltered. My father was a police officer and my mother was a stay at home mom. When I was ten years old my father was in charge of the police at the “State Fair of Oklahoma.” One day he took me out there and handed me a roll of free ride tickets and a five dollar bill. He told me “that money is for lunch, don’t go spend it at the side show.” Well as soon as he was out of my site I ran straight to the side show. See, I...Read more 0 comments
