A circus dwarf and a man with the 'stretchiest skin in the world' have been banned from appearing at an Oxford University college ball.
It seems vertically challenged Demon Dan’s ability to drag a vacuum cleaner using only his genitals cuts no mustard with the dean of St Peter’s College.
Neither does Gary Stretch’s talent for pulling a flap of his own neck skin over his mouth. Ball organisers had considered the pair from the Circus of Horrors touring company to perform at their £75-a-ticket bash on May 7. But college masters have censored the C’est La Revolution event.
The decision angered Demon Dan, otherwise known as Daniel Blackner, who said: ‘I have a brilliant resumé after featuring as an Ewok in a Star Wars film and various Muppet movies as a flying teddy bear.’
Circus of Horrors has been touring for 15 years and warns that its Gothic-style horror shows are ‘not for sissies or those of a nervous disposition’.
Its creator, known only as Doctor Haze, said: ‘It is ridiculous for the dean to try and decide what people should or should not see.’
A university spokesman said the Circus of Horrors was considered but deemed unsuitable for the ball.
