Information on the Performance Act:
‘Richard Filby… Always dressed to impress in a three piece suit and hat no matter the occasion, even under the harsh sun of his homeland, Australia. A 5 minute to 1 hour comedy, fire & knife juggling, magic and Rola Bola show by a world renowned juggler.’
My show is a death defying journey from start to finish with lots of humour and audience participation along the way. I even let the audience choose the soundtrack for an added level of engagement. I juggle swords, fire, cigar boxes, 7 balls and anything else I can get my hands on. With the world’s “wobbliest table” I finish the performance by stacking cigar boxes and extra layers on to my Rola Bola and climbing from the first layer to top – all while in the balance. As if that wasn’t enough, I juggle knives and fire on top! An original and breath-taking stunt that is unmatched on the street.
I have a wide variety of skills and can also do roving entertainment to bring a little but of colour and fun to any event. My show is suitable inside or outside, on a stage or on the street. I always (unless discussed beforehand) come with my own sound system large enough to perform to a full-sized crowd and can be trusted to work without assistance or supervision.
A bright blue suit, balls, knives, fire. A trilby Hat. Yes, it’s Richard Filby! One of the most lively and entertaining jugglers of the modern era. With his gyroscopic balance abilities and high skill juggling it’s only a bonus that he is funny and charming as on top of all of that. The Richard Filby Spectacule is unlike any show you’ve ever seen before. You will be bedazzled, immersed and thrilled during what feels like a casual conversation between one man and his audience.
Stage Plot & Technical Info:
Stage or Ground Show: A flat surface is ideal but not necessary. Cobblestones and Grass are fine.
My bare minimum performance space is 3m x 3m x 3m. I can work in a smaller space but would have to forfeit some of my tricks and stunts. Ideally I would like a few extra meters in each dimension.
I always bring my own self-powered sound system and can work with total self-sufficiency.
I’m willing to tailor my costume and variety of tricks to perform as roving entertainment for any event.
Depending on my tour, scheduling, and the demands of the event prices may vary. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote and availability. It’s very likely that I want to perform at your event as much as you would like to have me. So it’s worth inquiring and together we can come to an agreement that works well for everyone.
