“In my 50 years in the circus, I’ve never had this much talent in one show,” said George Carden of this year’s Circus Spectacular. Newly discovered acts by Carden include:
• Joseph Dominick Bauer, Ringmaster. Hailing from Swiss circus royalty, Bauer is emcee and conqueror of the Wheel of Death.
• Daniel Raffo, World Renowned Tiger Trainer. Direct from Argentina, Raffo’s bevy of beautiful Bengal big cats are untamed, untethered, and utterly unpredictable.
• Andrea and Lluvia, Courageous and Indescribable. This daring duo hangs high above the arena, by their hair while spinning at dangerous speeds and juggling flaming batons.
• Broadway Bo, The World’s Largest Performing Elephant. Trained by Larry Carden. In a jaunty top hat, see this incredible 5 ton pachyderm perform feats of precision and perfection.
• The Christiani Family, Bubbly and Bouncing Comics. This Italian family reaches remarkable raucous heights while their rambunctious antics leave the audience reeling.
• Guiming Meng, Steady and Poised. From China, Meng amazes in displays of dexterity and determination.
• Caroline Williams and the Liberty Horses. Eight generations of German equestrian circus history course through Caroline’s high stepping steeds.
• Hernando and Marius, Motorcycle Madness. Not for the faint of heart, Hernando and Marius take motocross to new heights, combining dangerous daredevils and a delicate incline wire.
• David Smith, Jr., Human Cannonball. David is a multi-award winning Human Cannonball, holding the world’s record for both height and distance as he blasts from his booming barrel.
