Krystal Pohaku: Sword Swallowing as Winnie the Clown

Krystal Pohaku swallows swords, walks on lego and puts herself into boxes of blades! She is also the lovable Winnie the ClownShe performs with Freakshow Deluxe who’s reverend Tommy Gunn was on a previous episode!

In this episode, I’m thrilled to talk to Krystal about how she got into clowning and sword swallowing. We’ll also talk about her other acts too. She also appeared in a BuzzFeed video and two movies — so we’ll definitely talk about that!

I’M ALSO SORT OF AFRAID OF CLOWNS! We’ll touch on that a bit too.

Krystal also weighs in about the scary clown craze that seemed to sweep the nation for no reason last year.

You can catch up with Winnie the Clown on Facebook:

    1. That’s a photo I found on the web, but my clown doll was the same model and looked identical. When you twisted its nose it would play this music box like carnival song but as the spring ran sown it it slow down and get all distorted sounding.
