Showmen & Promoters
"Men, women, and children who cannot live on gravity alone need something to satisfy their gayer, lighter moods and hours, and he who ministers to this want is, in my opinion, in a business established by the Creator of our nature. If he worthily fulfills his mission and amuses without corrupting, he need never feel that he has lived in vain."
--P. T. Barnum
Showmen and impresarios-- without them there are no shows. From the granddaddy of American showmen, Phineas Taylor Barnum, to such modern day legends as Ward Hall, showmen are an essential element of the show.
