Venice Beach Freakshow owner Todd Ray makes plans for a unique celebration: the birthday of his two-headed bearded dragon, Poncho and Lefty. The two are about to turn three years old despite initial expectations they'd live less than two weeks. Looking to make the event the biggest birthday party the Freakshow has ever had, Todd invites two new performers to join his family -- a living giant and a bearded lady. One is George Bell, the tallest American; the other is Jessa, an actual bearded lady from San Francisco. After sharing stories over dinner with the rest of the Freakshow performers, both agree to appear at the celebration, which is open to the public and also features a mariachi band, a piñata, and a birthday cake shaped like its honorees Poncho and Lefty. Sword-swallowing and fire-themed stunts round out the festivities.
