Quick Overview



Shedding light on the life of Franz Taibosh, aka Clicko, this account describes his early years in South Africa, traces his Korana ancestry, and shows how bushmen from Africa became exhibits in Western show business. Offering in-depth knowledge of this documented star performer in the early 20th century, the book reveals how he danced and yelled on stage as the Wild Dancing Bushman for three decades in music halls, circuses, and freak shows. From misery under a vicious manager to fulfillment as a member of an American show business family, this chronicle of Franz Taibosh’s life encounters immortalized showbiz tsars, university anthropologists, and real-life characters such as the original Zip the Pinhead.
