Bob at Large

Circus meets the streets in this amazing three-wheeling, cylinder stacking, comic explosion! Unbelievably high skills, audience participation, dangerous stunts, all tightly woven into a show with as much comic tension as a family of whales on a bungee cord. When, David Letterman saw the act he exclaimed, “That’s just insane Bob!” Now you decide: balanced inspiration or inspiration-ally unbalanced? Bring your whole family – Bob’s show is side-splitting, laugh-a- minute fun.
