GEORGE "The GIANT" McARTHUR

George The Giant is not a larger than life performer because of his size, though he stands an impressive seven foot three inches in height. It might be because it has been mentioned; George is one of the most complete sideshow performers today, by performers and audiences alike.
The giant appeared as Colossus in Tim Burtons movie "Big Fish", and some not so known movies like "Tough Luck", "Firecracker", or "Relative Strangers" his television appearances, include "The Tonight Show," "Touch By An Angel", "Americas Got Talent", and most recently "Big Giant Swords" and many others, not to mention his appearances on CNN, The Learning Channel, The Discovery Channel, and The Travel Channel.
George The Giant was born and raised in a small city near Los Angels called Bakersfield. When at the age of twelve he was taken to the county fair where he witnessed a sword swallower and fire-eater perform on the bally stage. George could barely believe what the human body could accomplish. We would love to say at that instant GEORGE THE GIANT was released upon the world, but that was not the case, it did start his love of the sideshow though. It wasn't till George was twenty-one before he started to learn the sideshow art. That path was started when a family tragedy caused him to have a fear of fire. He decided he would over come his fear the same way he over came his fear of heights... head on. In the case of his fear of heights he bungee jumped, for this of fire, he would learn fire eating. While researching fire eating he discovered descriptions of other sideshow stunts and started learning them also.
George has had the opportunities to travel around the world performing his brand of entertainment in all types of venues from nightclubs to libraries. He has also been in publications ranging from "The National Enquirer" to "Vogue" George The Giant is your all around performer.
