Grindshows with Pete Kolozsy

 

Pete Kolozsy was born into the circus world as the youngest son of  a family of Hungarian acrobats.

 

Circa ' 67 the family started exploring the carnival side of show business and that was where Pete found his calling.

 

Specifically in Shows.

 

Grindshow,

 

Ten-in-one,

 

Free act or just shilling the Insurance Pitch on Speedy's Motordrome for fun.

 

The principles were all the same:

 

 "Hey, look at that! " -- " What the heck is that? " --- " It can't be real! " ---

" Well, he's looking at it. want to see it ,too! "

 

Pete is a full time pro showman.

 

He still tours the country every summer with his unbelievably strange attractions.

If you see something advertised at a fair some day that you just can't believe is real, but when you buy your ticket, you find out it is not only real but alive and true...Odds are that you've just seen one of Pete's shows.
