Johnny Meah

The Czar of Bizarre


Side shows may be gone, but the wonderful tales and colorful characters who populated them live on right here. Musings, memories, reflections, and rants, (often times accompanied by pretty pictures), this archive of history on a time and place that no longer exists in America is told first-hand by the Czar himself. Come back often for new articles, and enjoy the ones we have here.

Anyone who's enjoyed Johnny Meah's writing in the widely acclaimed banner art book, Freaks, Geeks and Strange Girls, his magazine articles or his serialized internet stories, will find his first novel, Polidore, fascinating.
