Heather Holliday Interview In Time Out
has a great interview with the talented 22 year old sword swallower, Heather Holliday.
I've had seriously bad heartburn. It's all the stomach acid going in and out with the sword. I didn't know what heartburn was. I mean, I knew the commercials. But I was like, "Heartburn's for fat, greasy truckers."
and of the family pressures facing freak show performers:
My mom really likes it, but she wants it to be a phase. Everybody that thinks it's really cool wouldn't want their own kid doing it.
You can catch Heather live at The Coney Island Circus Sideshow, which opens this Sunday.
