American Chainsaw Marquee

About the Show

Master chainsaw sculptor, “The Machine” Jesse Green pushes the envelope to keep his small business moving forward.  With the high demands of clients and employees, it’s not an easy task running a small business.  However, he and his crew create some of the most awesome chainsaw sculptures in the world.  There’s no log that Jesse’s chainsaws can’t conquer and no sculpture he and his crew can’t create.  Whether it’s an intricately detailed dragon for a Salem witch shop, a 27-foot tall baseball bat for a children’s sports league, or a clown that squirts water out of its mouth for the circus, Jesse and his crew always approach the project head on.  Chainsaws are very dangerous - one wrong move and someone could lose a finger or an arm, or even worse they could cut off their entire face!
