Circus of Horrors

Founded in 2006, the Circus of Horrors was the brainchild of a Spanish king of clowns Jesús César Silva González better known as Suso Silva.

Now aged 62, this award winning clown has decided to retire from performance and is saying goodbye to his fans in the new production, Requiem which features his on stage suicide as he recreates many of his most famous characters.

Nosferatu, Lucifer, El Loco, Suso Clown, each and every one of them will have a special place in Requiem but he will not make this farewell alone as other emblematic characters who have been part of the Circus of Horrors story will accompany him during his last performance.

This is a limited national tour and Requiem will run at the Almeria Fair Ground from April 4 to April 14 with tickets costing between €30 and €60 although some performances will see discounts of up to 30 per cent if booked via the Circus of Horrors website.

Not for the easily shocked

This is not a show for those easily offended or shocked and although anyone aged five or more can attend, it is recommended that due to the type of humour and the language that the ideal audience should be aged 16 and up.

As Suso Silva says about his retirement from the stage, “The universe will move forward with new characters, stories and shows which will bring new blood to the world of the Circus of Horrors.”

      Whilst this looks like a lovely show, The Circus of Horrors was founded by my business partner John Haze in 1995 at the Glastonbury festival, and has been touring the world ever since. Currently on tour in the UK through out 2024.
