He lies on a bed of nails with four audience members standing on him. Then he lies on a bed of razor-sharp swords. He crushes his chest with a brick and sledgehammer, and he sticks needles through his body. He’s Zamora The Torture King—“The Man Who Feels No Pain.”

Zamora’s played OZZFest, Lollapalooza, and Knott's Berry Farm's Halloween Haunt. I’ve seen him perform at Jeff McBride’s Wonderground…and now he’s coming back to Vegas, to headline a show at the Onyx Theater (with special guest contortionist Stephanie Castellone). Apparently they’re filming Zamora for a UK TV show that will be similar to Stan Lee’s Superhumans, which appeared on the History Channel.

So if you’ve got a strong stomach (or if you’ve got a weak stomach but don’t mind throwing up), swing by the Commercial Center on Sunday, July 14 at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. (Call Onyx at 732-7225.)
