Captain Stab-Tuggo, aka Chris Steele, is a self-created sideshow character. What began as a boyhood fascination with the circus propelled him into a world of entertainment and wonder. He has been performing professionally since October 2007. Since their debut at The Gravity Pub, Captain Stab-Tuggo and his wife Madame Maybelle have performed on Season 6 of "America's Got Talent", when Piers Morgan declared them "Without a doubt, the two most disgusting people in America!". The Captain has performed solo at Ripley's Believe It or Not! in Gatlinburg, TN and St. Augustine, FL, for 4 years straight, as well as Six Flags Over Georgia's Annual Fright Fest, three years running. They have appeared on the daytime talk show "Atlanta & Company", and have been featured on E! Entertainment's show "The Soup".
They have entertained at the Atlanta Tattoo Arts Festival, Ink & Dagger's Annual Man Day, Tattoos for Schools with Speakeasy Tattoo Studio, Psycho de Mayo Customer Appreciation Party with Psycho Tattoo Studios, Alexander High School's Annual Talent Show, Brighten Academy's Annual Variety Show, multiple fundraising events at Psycho Tattoo 3 for the local community, and Coney Comes to Cobb events presented by Shmaltz Brewing Company.
You may have seen them here or there, but the best way to see them is right in front of you! You will receive a response within 24 hours of initial contact. Very professional, courteous, and enthusiastic about their craft. Genuinely excited to be at your event!
Captain Stab-Tuggo: He is the man with the talent and the personality to keep the show in high gear!
Madame Maybelle: The Sidekick with Sass, she'll do anything for a laugh!
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 15 - 60 minutes
From mild to wild, the Captain can create a performance to suit any crowd! The audience will be left speechless and witnessing things they have never seen before, and rest assured, will never see again.
We can provide sound and lighting systems for an additional fee. All other accomodations will be discussed individually, as the choice of venue is taken into consideration in planning the set list.
To maximize the entertainment for your event, we ask for a designated stage area elevated 18" or higher. The ceiling should be cleared easily from this level. Fire acts are dependent upon venue. A secure location to store our equipment and props is required.
With many variations on timeless classics, such as Sword Swallowing, The Human Blockhead, Bed of Nails, Fire Eating, Fire Breathing, and Glass Walking, Captain Stab-Tuggo is guaranteed to AMAZE and leave your guests incredulous! Is what they are seeing real? Is it possible that one human can do these extraordinary feats? Absolutely! But the Captain doesn't stop there! He introduces more contemporary sideshow elements including Lifting, Glass Eating, Human Dartboard, Animal Traps, the Captain Stab-Tuggo Original "Brainsaw", and many more. Madame Maybelle has a few signature stunts as well including Lifting and Balloon Swallowing.
With all of these combined possibilities, your event will be one to remember!
