When I was in Austin last week I swung by the Museum of the Weird and saw the Black Scorpion perform. At the museum the sideshow acts do a lot of short shows all day. His show was good and it consisted of him talking about his
Ectrodactyly, which people used to be called “Lobster Hands”, then he did glass walking.
My main dislike of his show was that it felt like he was talking at us and not talking to us. The best way to describe how he talks is like an 1980’s pro wrestler talking to the TV camera. I get that he has made a stylistic choice in how he delivers material, however for me it made it hard to connect with him.
Unfortunately due to my time restrictions when I was there, I really didn’t get to see the rest of the museum on this visit (or the next one). I guess I’ll have to get back to Austin another time.
