Hilarious and spectacular comedy juggling shows from an award-winning entertainer. Is he an inept, bungling buffoon or a highly skilled, talented professional, not even Elfic knows. Audiences go on a roller coaster ride of fun & laughter, amazement and bewilderment, highly enjoyed by both children and adults alike.
"Completely brilliant and created an amazing atmosphere"
- The Eden Project
Elfic's vast array of circus skills includes high unicycling, ladder balancing, juggling of balls, clubs, china plates and fire, piano accordion playing on a unicycle, hat manipulation and treading on a horn whilst looking surprised. The tricks are all performed in his madcap style, with witty banter, a touch of magic, improvisation and audience participation.
"Neat line in self-deprecating humour, fumbling an easy trick before going on to astound with a complicated one"
- The Stage
Performances generally last 30-50 mins and are adaptable for different age groups, venues big or small, inside or outdoors. Available for all events including fairs, festivals, holiday parks, tourist attractions, corporate events, street entertainment, parties, weddings and funerals...
Shows can be combined with walkabout entertainment or a circus skills workshop to give audience members a chance to learn some of the skills they have witnessed.
Based in Devon, Elfic (aka Rupert Elford) has been performing professionally for over 25 years. He trained at Fooltime (now Circomedia) in Bristol, one of Britain’s leading circus schools and has won Covent Garden Jester Of The Year.
