“Non-stop sidesplitting comedy and daredevil stunts!” Ontario Standard FreeHolder
“Legitimate physical dexterity and bad boy clowning for 60 some minutes of one-ring (half-ring?) entertainment.” Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Canadian duo Jean Saucier and Laurence Smythe offer an evening that has pleased family audiences all over the world, including at numerous Canadian festivals, Las Vegas and tours to Japan, France and Hungary. Both artists performed with the prestigious Cirque du Soleil before creating their own two-man circus in 1998.
For most of the performance, rubber-faced Smythe is a prankster in the mold of Red Skelton, Charlie Chaplin and Robin Williams, a bumbling but lovable assistant to the more serious equilibrist Saucier, who is a master of classical circus skills including sword balancing, unicycle tricks, magic and juggling. The pair creates a fast-paced revue format that has been described as a cartoon-like action adventure performed live on stage.
