Finding Meeky

Five of the world's greatest carnival and circus showmen reminisce about their encounters with Meeky, The World's Strangest Little Boy.
Meeky, a sideshow oddity with the uncanny ability to jump “like a flea” into the air, mysteriously disappeared in the late 1950s. This short collection of interviews is woven together evoking the tradition of the bally and the art of carnival showmanship.

Featuring Ward Hall and Chris Christ (World of Wonders); A. W. Stencell (showman and author of Girl Show; Seeing is Believing; and Circus and Carnival Ballyhoo); Dick Johnson (showman and magician) and the late Tom Cooper (showman and artist).

Finding Meeky was an official selection of the 2009 Coney Island Film Festival and is part of The Meeky Project, a large multi-media installation that recreates the sideshow world of Meeky.
