Listen
AIR DATE: October 31, 2011

Ottavio Gesmundo is one of the many flashy acts in Las Vegas. He shoots apples off his wife’s head with a crossbow. But back in the 1980s, when he was just getting started in Las Vegas, he secretly filmed a major headliner, Bobby Berosini, abusing orangutans, and inadvertently fueled an animal rights movement on the Strip. Ottavio Gesmundo talks about that hidden video, and why it almost ruined his career. Original broadcast 5/10/11.

GUEST
Ottavio Gesmundo, performer, The Viper Vixens
