Bamboozled Venues

Local world class performers:

Mr Spin - Nigel Martin

Mr Spin’s show is a highly skilled, comic vaudevillian style circus, juggling act. Mr Spin is a loveable, charismatic character that is a favourite with all audiences. He performs a beautiful three-ball juggle, diabolo, Chinese devil-sticking with baseball bats, one ball manipulation and an eight ball juggle, mixed with mad capped antics and an incredible sense of fun, not to mention a few hat tricks thrown in! This all culminates into him jumping on to crazy zigzag unicycle of his own design, where he juggles three baseball bats while balancing a glass of water on his head!

The Mr Spin Show can be adapted for either the stage, circus, street or cabaret and depending on your requirements the show can run from 20 to 45 minutes.

Louise Clarke - Pandora Pink

She performs a skilful clownesque cigar-box and sassy hat routine to 'Blue Suede shoes' and 'Hard Headed Women'. She then asks a willing volunteer to be the next Elvis and together they perform a gravity defying 12 cigar-box stack & balance. The show culminates in a ridiculous attempt to climb a precariously teetering tower made up of her beloved pink boxes. Producing a show that is truly engaging, hilarious and utterly absurd!
