Another great unknown, this time from Toronto. This unknown performer reinforces our belief that the best new circus acts are on the street. Keep those skills coming boys and girls. Video by Sothy Sok
The steps the dancer at the end of the video does look like a genuine step from a traditional Irish dance. You tell me.
The way they play this music is solid. Melynas Kaktusas
So many good or interesting street performing videos today by unknown and unnamed buskers. This is posted by US-based YouTube channel Full3FailVideo
It is not the best performance but it is workmanlike. Video by tourscotland of a guy busking in the High Street on visit to Perth, Perthshire.Scotland.
The guy without the guitar in this video posted this on his YouTube channel.
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.

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 Large Iru 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.
Another unknown performer in a video which was released earlier this year by another YouTube channel. When we first saw it last month we did not publish it on Street I Am because we did not know the name of the performers name or the /city in Mexico where it was shot but since it is very clever and has re-surfaced again perhaps we can get someone to fill us in on the details.
