She slithered into his heart
and he lit her fire. Talk about getting your freak on: Valentines Day saw the holy union of Tyler Fleet, a 30-year-old fire-eater/sword-swallower, and Jill Fisher, 26, a snake-charmer. Fleet, known as Tyler Fyre, made a name for himself at Coneys Islands Sideshows by the Seashore, the boroughs best known freak show. Fisher, a.k.a. Thrill Kill Jill, is a burlesque performer in the Washington D.C. area. Neither Jill or I were looking for love that day, Fleet said as the couple was in between shows in Alabama last week. Fisher agreed. I dont really know how to explain it, I never felt that way before, she said. I knew it was for real. Cupidmost likely sporting a Mohawk, pierced nose and face tattoofound his mark. After meeting in passing over the years, the two connected just over a year ago on Valentines Day at the Birchmere Burlesque-A-Pades in Alexandria, Va. It was obvious to both of us, Fleet recalled. On Thanksgiving, Fisher brought Fleet home and introduced him to her parents not as the fire-eater, but simply as Tyler. The two decided to get married in Las Vegas, with an Elvis-impersonator presiding. The wedding was broadcast live on the website vivalasveg
