For those interested in carrying on the sideshow tradition, Cridland is quick to offer some words of wisdom. It is important to know what you are doing before you do it he said. However, he warns that performances like his are harder than most people think. “It’s not ju.st acts, it’s the whole show. I love showing people something new and amazing.” Links to interviews, reviews, pictures and Cridland’s tour dates can be found on his Web site: www.zamora.blogspot.com.
