Hello, it's Eak the Geek


Here's Eak the Geek (aka Eduardo Arrocha), longtime East Village resident...


He is a senior cast member of the Coney Island Circus Sideshow ... having performed there for more than 15 years...


These photos by Stacie Joy are from a recent Congress of Curious Peoples at Coney Island USA, where he performed.



While we're not sure how much Eak the Geek will perform there this year, the Sideshows are under way, currently held on Saturdays and Sundays... and the shows will expand as the season progresses ... Visit the Coney Island USA site for all the details...

Great photos of Eak the Geek! Love the Sideshow and the Freak Bar, can't wait to get out there this year!

I had the pleasure of jumping on Eak's stomach many years ago...to an audience of zero. Rain or shine, audience or none, the show must go on!

My three-year-old son and friend once spent an afternoon in tompkins square park tracing all the stars and planets on Eak the Geek's arms (he was quite nice about them doing so). Didn't know who he was then, so glad to find out now!
