From dancer and trumpet player Master Blaster G and other performers to all the great locations, the Charlotte Observer wants you to know where to see and who are some of the the best SF Street Performers.
Where do you go to see great circus acts these days? The street of course. Unless you want to wait for the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Baily or save up for Cirque du Soleil you can find some great acrobats busking by going just walking around the right places. If you are planning to travel to a big city or you already live in one, you probably can see a great circus busker today but it may be getting more difficult according to where you are.
The sardine family for instance travels all over the world and delivers high quality acrobatics in an entertaining way that will mess you up if you get into it. WATCH this new video release by 123popcultureThe Sardine Family Circus is the former home of Maximillian Fitz Griffiths who is currently appearing in the Tony Award nominated production of Pippin.

Are you getting the picture? It is out there the great performers of the Big Top are on the corner, developing and perfecting right before your very eyes. Some are in videos but are unknown to most and do not have a name well known. This next video was a big view getter in March released by many YouTube channels that month but never did his name appear. He was instead referred to as amazing performer and the popular, you got to see this and other monikers. Shot in Union Square NYC,The version we have is from geetu zaildar·As you can see the performer on the street in order to get an audience often spend much of their time engaging the crowd with witty banter which is much longer than the time of the actual trick itself.This style stands in sharp contrast to the style of performing that most circus environments offer, which is more centered around lights and music and almost no audience participation or interaction. It is a one of a kind experience available nowhere else and in the case of some performers, close to the danger. One of the great performers I’ve seen who can engage a crowd masterfully is none other than Bob of Bob At LargeIru Streetiam video. Here are some excerpts of his performance as he, on a very cold December day about 42 degrees, is warming up the crowd for his major double finale, to be edited later.
Unfortunately for those of us who enjoy a little circus in our street entertainment agenda, many of the ordinances being considered as of this writing in some cities, do not allow amplification at all. I have never seen in video or in person a circus street act that did not have some need of amplification. Under the laws now in effect in NYC governing park performers, no amplification is allowed. In Japan in the parks great circus acts perform with amps and it is amazing. If you want to see more great circus acts right where you live, then tell your favorite government bureaucrat to allow some amplification. Tell them you have a right to have your senses be engaged by feats of balance and aerodynamics. And if you happen to notice some of this circus acrobatics going happening on a street near you. give it a look. You might have to pay $150 to get that close tomorrow.
This video was released about 2 years ago so it is from the past and it is an unknown performer doing a very old trick but one you do;t see everyday so we thought it would be fun to post on a middle of the week Tuesday just for fun. It was performed in Leidseplein, in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
