Bobby Hunt, AKA Circus Boy, has performed on stages across America and the world. He has merged his unique blend of circus antics, including juggling, balancing on a ladder, riding a unicycle, riding the world’s smallest bicycle, and even making balloon animals, among other tricks, with a steady banter of jokes and comedy to create an act that has enabled him to open for some of show business’ bigger names, including Weird Al Yankovic, Jackie Mason, The Beach Boys, Billy Ray Cyrus, The Smothers Brothers, Harry Anderson and others.
Hunt has been featured on an episode of “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!” and he has performed with the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
Winnetka-native David Fisher, AKA The Rope Warrior, has jumped into the hearts of millions of fans around the globe in the two decades since he was told he couldn’t make a living jumping rope.
Since 1993, Fisher, a former college volleyball player turned physical fitness superhero, has performed live for over 5 million school children, while making more than 100 television appearances and even performing for Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, and former Russian President Boris Yeltsin.
Fisher’s fame has been generated by his ability to use a jump rope to execute stunts most of us can’t even imagine. His amazing repertoire includes “razzle-dazzle” techniques, such as glow-in-the-dark ropes; so-called “power jumping,” or passing the rope under his feet up to four times per jump; rope jumping dance steps; dribbling a ball with his feet while jumping rope; and jumping rope while sitting and lying on the floor – a technique Fisher refers to as “tush-ups.”
He has been recognized as the world record holder for the most “tush-ups” or “rump jumps” performed in one minute.
