NEW YORK, NY (WDTN) – He calls himself Grennan the Green Monster. His talent earned him a spot on the NBC talent show America’s Got Talent.

Grennan Bartlett-Nealeigh is only 8-years-old, but he is already an accomplished knife-thrower.

Howard Stern says Grennan’s act is “an act he has never seen before”.

Grennan’s assistant is his 6-year-old sister, Charlotte. Brave girl.

Not to be outdone, his parents also perform sideshow stunts. The family performs all over the country as part of the FreakShow Deluxe carnival style sideshow.

They have performed locally at Urban Nights in downtown Dayton as well.

Grennan is a third grader at Dayton Boy’s Preparatory Academy. His sister is a kindergartner at Charity Adams Early Academy.

Grennan was supposed to appear on Tuesday night’s show, but didn’t make it on.  He was a preview act in the week’s ahead.  We’ll be sure to let you know when he gets his chance in the national spotlight.
