Tyler Fyre & Thrill Kill Jill's Valentines Day 2007 wedding made the cover of the Washington Post Weekend Section. And there's a picture of the Weekend section on the actual front page of the Post, so here's us on the cover of the Washington Post. Not bad first piece of press for the new team.
WASHINGTON CITY PAPER
BEST SIDESHOW DUO 2008!
The sword-swallowing, fire-eating, carnival world isn’t the most stable environment in which to build a marriage. But Tyler Fyre and Thrill Kill Jill (really Tyler and Jill Fleet) somehow manage to defy death while upholding until-death-do-us-part. The West Virginia-based pair met on Valentine’s Day 2006; exactly one year later, a Vegas Elvis impersonator tied their knot. Now, they tour the country together in a 1973 Airstream trailer as the Lucky Daredevil Thrillshow, stopping monthly for sold-out shows at hometown haunt the Palace of Wonders. The Fleets manage to keep some spice in their two-year relationship: Tyler eats fire; Jill charms snakes; Tyler drops 19 steel blades into a sarcophagus while Jill contorts her body inside. But even when Tyler’s not carving a watermelon off Jill’s bare belly with a chainsaw, the two are still each other’s main attraction. Recently, the pair’s at least picked up a safer activity to share together: taxidermy. “We’re starting with what we’ve got handy,” says Jill. “So right now, we’re big into squirrels.”
"The first book of its kind, The Tattooed Lady uncovers the true stories behind these women, bringing them out of the sideshow realm and into their working class realities. Combining thorough research with more than a hundred historical photos, this social history explores tattoo origins, women's history, and circus lore. A fascinating read, The Tattooed Lady pays tribute to a group of unique and amazing women whose legacy lives on."
Featuring our very own Tattooed Lady, Thrill Kill Jill!
