Human Pincushion

This is not a sight for the squeamish or the faint of heart! Sally Marvel uses 10″ & 12″ inch skewers to pierce through her face, neck, hands, bicep, and other sensitive areas. This wicked display will leave your knees weak! You can read more about Sally’s experiences with pain proof acts in her blog “Pain Proof Provocateur: Do I Feel Pain?”


Talking Act

Sally engages the audience with candid dialogue about the science of pain while piercing her body. This act is approximately 4:00 minutes long.

Burlesque: Psychobitch

A sinister and glam burlesque striptease followed by a creepy display of human pincushion. This act is 5:14 minutes long.

Non-Talking Act

A music-centric stage performance perfect for Halloween or freakshow-themed events any time of year. The length of this performance is adjustable between 3:30 & 5 minutes.

Note: Sally Marvel does not offer strolling pincushion. She also does not self-pierce repetitiously throughout the evening for β€˜ambient’ entertainment. If you would like a longer set than what is able to be accommodated with the acts described above, consider booking a stage show featuring additional sideshow acts.
