|Act Name:Bob at Large!
Joined the Faneuil Hall Marketplace Street Performer Program:2013
Short Bio:Bob at Large is no stranger to danger! This is where circus meets the streets and three-wheeling, cylinder stacking, comic adventure begins. Unbelievably high skills and seemingly deadly stunts are tightly woven into a show with as much comic tension as a family of whales on a bungee cord. Now you decide; unbalanced inspiration or inspiration-ally unbalanced? Bob's show is a side splitting laugh a minute.
Bob's been juggling since August 7, 1986, when he received his first set of juggling clubs, on his 13th birthday. Still in love with circus arts, Bob is the author of "Juggling Step-by-Step" a book and ball set that's been to print 5 times! Teaching literally tens of thousands to juggle. He's performed with over 20 circuses. Appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman. Bob's clip was so outrageous, Dave exclaimed, "Thats just insane, Bob!" CBS even included this stunt it in their tribute, "David Letterman: A Life on Television." Above all... Bob's favorite is street performing, "The spontaneous generosity of spirit that comes from an unsuspecting audience is magic"
