advice direct from P.T. Barnum the great promoter, entertainer and businessman
who identified an America starved for entertainment and flush with cash. A penniless
farm boy from Connecticut Barnum became the second recorded millionaire in American
history. In the process he invented the worldwide entertainment industry as we
know it -- complete with spin, hype and hoopla. He was extravagant, creative and
tenacious and his advice rings as strong and true today as it did in his time.
The Weekly Barnum is delivered to you by The Barnum Museum in Bridgeport
Connecticut, where Barnum's showmanship, entrepreneurial spirit and love of spectacle
live on today.
