After about ten years of that I was a plasterer for five years, and I actually started entertaining about four years ago now.
I did some snaps for The Daily Sport - I think I was in that every day for nearly a week or so doing a different stretch, a different story. And I think about two weeks later, Channel 4 rung me up wanting to do a little show for Fortean TV. Well obviously because I was in the book I was skimming through one day, and I saw this Swedish guy wearing 88 pegs on his face and I thought “bloody idiot!
We dare you to purchase a ticket to the most bizarre experience of your entire life! So, when the Circus Of Horrors came to town, we took a trip to the big top.
Yes my friends, today is your once-in-a-life opportunity to feast your eyes upon the world’s strangest living creature... Quietly tucked behind the scenes we found the trailer of Gary “Stretch” Turner and talked to him about life as the world’s stretchiest man.
By making people laugh at the same time, I just fell in love with entertaining. NAKED: Is there any kind of support organisation for EDS or your particular condition? But when I started doing TV appearances they complained heavily saying “you shouldn’t be putting yourself on TV ridiculing yourself and ridiculing the disease.” I said, “excuse me, but its people like myself that have done the research for the condition.” For example, its like the Elephant Man, a freak giving themselves to science. Here I am with the stretchiest skin in the world – a classic case of EDS! So do you find people prejudice to the more obvious physical freaks?
Four years ago I would never ever be an entertainer, not in my living life. That’s why they have all the information they have now. Because I wanted to find out more information about the disorder, my partner Jane joined the support group – they wouldn’t let me join. GARRY: I think that the opinions are just split all over the place. ” to “Oh my God, that is funny.” The reactions are right across the board. When we get the girls up to pull my skin from the audience – they’re just normal members of the public – and I would say one in ten doesn’t want to do this. NAKED: Do you think that looking normal, yet at the same time being a classic example of ‘the freak’ has given you a unique perspective? It’s like a costume I’m permanently wearing that doesn’t bother me. NAKED: Have you been asked to take part in a “classic” freak show? A friend of mine Matt Fraser, who is a “thalidomide” and has flippers, did a documentary a couple of years ago about the old freak show artists at Coney Island.
I thought, “that’s not too bad, I could put loads on.” So I went to the local shop and bought them out of pegs and decided to do one side of the face and thought, “yeah here’s another record.” And I think I did over a hundred.
Because the photos got in the papers it got a load of other people doing it!
There’s a guy in Stoke, a couple of Scandinavians, an American and then it became a craze in Ibiza and Tenerife.
Lincolnshire-born Garry, holder of two incredible Guinness world records (World’s Stretchiest Skin and Number of Clothes Pegs on Face), spoke frankly about his unusual medical condition and revealed a surprisingly positive view about the strange phenomena of the physical freak….
NAKED: Garry, did your parents know from your birth that you had this unusual physical condition? I guess it was from when I was about five or six years old.

The other children in the classroom would take hold of me and go “whoah your skin’s strange,” and I’d stretch it about and that.
