The Life and Times of George the Giant
"What is there to say... that's not in the police report?"
   Todd Robbins (Sideshow performer and historian)


     George The Giant is not a larger than life performer because of his size, though he stands an impressive seven foot three inches in height. It might be because it has been mentioned; George is one of the most complete sideshow performers today, by performers and audiences alike.
     This is normally the part of a web site that we state how great George the giant is, we could tell you he appeared as Colossus in Tim Burtons movie "Big Fish", or mention the other three movies he has done ("Tough Luck", "Firecracker", or "Relative Strangers"), but we don't want to sound presumptuous. That's why we won't mention his many television appearances, ("The Tonight Show," "Touch By An Angel", "The Guardian", "The Strip", or "According To Jim"). Not to mention his appearances on CNN, The Learning Channel, The Discovery Channel, and The Travel Channel.
     What we will say about George The Giant is he was born and raised in a small city near Los Angels called Bakersfield. When at the age of twelve he was taken to the county fair where he witnessed a sword swallower and fire-eater perform on the bally stage. George could barely believe what the human body could accomplish. We would love to say at that instant GEORGE THE GIANT was released upon the world, but that was not the case, it did start his love of the sideshow though. It wasn't till George was twenty-one before he started to learn the sideshow art. That path was started when a family tragedy caused him to have a fear of fire. He decided he would over come his fear the same way he over came his fear of heights... head on. In the case of his fear of heights he bungee jumped, for this of fire, he would learn fire eating. While researching fire eating he discovered descriptions of other sideshow stunts and started learning them also.
     George has had the opportunities to travel around the world performing his brand of entertainment in all types of venues from nightclubs to libraries. He has also been in publications ranging from "The National Enquirer" to "Vogue" George The Giant is your all around performer, what ever you need let George do it.
     George The Giant hopes you enjoy his little home on the web, and that you keep dreaming big.
