Who does it?
Laurel "Goddess of
Fire" & The Great Baldini
accompanied by other
sideshow talents such as:
James Michael Hite
What CAN'T this guy
do? With previous circus experience, this guy knows just about
everything! The Great Baldini is great at freaking people out with
his eyelid weightlifting, getting people to hammer nails up his
nose, having people crush his head into a pile of glass or walk on
his back while lying on a bed of nails. He also walks on stilts,
clowns, has quite the impressive knife throwing act, can make just
about anything out of a rubber balloon, paints circus banners,
makes marionettes and SO MUCH MORE!
So if you ever hear
the phrase, "Let's give it up for The Great Baldini!" you'd better
be certain that a GRRREAT round of applause is warranted!
The Great Baldini has
15 years experience in the circus business and used to be known as
"Buckles" the clown. While living in Louisville, KY he has
performed many venues featuring his sideshow act, Circus of the
Strange. Once he met Laurel in the summer of 2008, the two were
off and running on an adventure of sideshow mayhem. In May 2009
they officially formed Blue Moon Circus together.
To get to know The
Great Baldini better, visit him here:
She dances through
your soul with fire fingers, spins fire poi and eats fire. This
graceful Goddess of Fire lights up the night with her eclectic
style of dancing and fire skills!
Laurel Fleury has been
dancing with fire since May 2005 ever since learning the fire arts
and fire safety from friends while living in Carrboro, NC. She
landed in Louisville, KY for Christmas 2005 to visit family after
a three month long road trip. After seeing the abundance of visual
and performing arts in Louisville, she decided to call Louisville
home. Laurel is not only a performance artist, but a visual artist
Laurel met The Great
Baldini at a Big Bone Art Show when they were both performing and
have been partners in sideshow crime ever since. They form the hub
of what is now grown
