It was founded in Seattle by Jim Rose in the early 1990s. The sideshow came to prominence as a second stage show at the 1992 Lollapalooza festival, then called the Jim Rose Circus Sideshow. Rolling Stone magazine called it "the absolute must-see act" and USA Today termed Rose's troupe "Lollapalooza's word-of-mouth hit attraction." After Lollapalooza, in 1993 Jim Rose headlined seven world tours and released a self-titled video on Rick Rubin's American Recordings that quickly became a cult classic. In 1994 The Jim Rose Circus was chosen to tour with Nine Inch Nails and a then-unknown Marilyn Manson, and later with KoRn and Godsmack. 1998 saw another world tour featuring women sumo wrestling, Mexican transvestite wrestling and chain saw football. The show landed Rose and troupe in Lubbock Texas Jail and was later banned from New Zealand. Both of those issues were settled 4 months later. "That was one of my highest grossing shows," Rose claimed. It reportedly netted over 4 million dollars.show more
