Flyin’ Bob’s Three Ring Circus swings into Nelson

For 20 years, across Canada and in 15 countries around the world, Flyin’ Bob has performed as a juggler, tightwire walker, comic, and musician in every venue imaginable: the street, stage, corporate offices, national television shows, and schools.

Flyin’ Bob will bring his antics to the Capitol Theatre stage this Sunday as part of the local venue’s Kids Series.

For 20 years, across Canada and in 15 countries around the world, Flyin’ Bob has performed as a juggler, tightwire walker, comic, and musician in every venue imaginable: the street, stage, corporate offices, national television shows, and schools. He has also performed at festivals in Europe, Japan, Singapore, Australia, Korea, Israel, Egypt, and the U.S.

From balancing a stack of chairs on his chin to a spectacular and nearly disastrous high-wire walk, Flyin’ Bob takes audiences on a 50 minute search for balance. 

Through juggling, clowning, unicycling, acrobatics, wire walking, audience participation, comedy, and character, Bob’s performances stress the importance of physical activity, concentration, peer support, community and the value of failure as well as success. Visit his site at flybob.com.
