Ses Carny began his entertainment career in the year 2000, after mentoring with multiple circus professionals. He humbly started off as a street performer in Boston, who's specialties included classic circus-sideshow acts, such as sword swallowing, pain proof stunts, and some basic magic. In the same year, he added knife throwing to his list of skills, as well as fire eating and breathing, which caused him to approach a local renaissance festival about potentially performing for their patrons. After a routine audition, he was given the opportunity, which would change his life forever. Over that season, he learned more than he could've imagined and put all of that knowledge into a stage show, which he then took on the road.
Over the following years, Ses has toured around the United States, performing everywhere from Six Flags Theme Parks nationwide and headlining at various casinos across the U.S., to music festivals, Renaissance Faires, colleges, tattoo conventions, and carnival midways! The stunts he presented landed him in two separate Ripley's Believe It Or Not books, multiple magazines, independent films, and also a minor recurring role on the Science Channel's hit show "Oddities".
After retiring from the standard sideshow acts, the show is now focused on Comedy, Fire Eating/Breathing, and Human Target Knife Throwing. With over 5,500 live shows under his belt, Ses is very proud of the fact that he has never cancelled a performance and always gives the best he's got on stage.
Alina Inorog grew up in Buzău, Romania, right near the south-eastern side of the Carpathian Mountains. There, she was practically raised in her family's one-ring circus, performing wherever they could find an audience. She maintained standard duties, such as setting up/tearing down the show, all the while learning tricks of the trade, which she would use later in life when setting out on her own.
Her first "break" into the family business was at ten years old, as her father's knife throwing assistant. Much like today, she would assume her position against the target board, displaying not only a charismatic charm, but also bravery beyond measure.
After only a short two years as her father's "target girl", a tragic accident left her parentless and she was placed into the Romanian orphanage system. She would go on to be adopted by a wonderful couple from The United States, although never forgetting her circus roots. In 2018, she teamed up with Ses, resurrecting her previous show role and taking to the stage once again. Alina's career may have started when she was a child and put on hiatus for a bit, but now she's all grown up, more confident than ever, and honored to be continuing her family's legacy.
