Elfic’s Juggling Show
Shows of circus skills, madcap comedy and wicked one-liners, with audience participation, improvisation, mayhem and a little danger!
Elfic combines elements of street entertainment and circus to create high energy, fast paced, award-winning entertainment. Audiences go on a roller coaster ride of fun and laughter, amazement and bewilderment. Is he an inept, bungling buffoon or a highly skilled, talented professional? Having performed since 1989, Elfic has a wealth of experience to produce a very polished act; however it always remains fresh and exciting. Suitable for all the family, his humour and tricks cross the boundary between children and adults. “To call Elfic a childrens’ entertainer would be to do him a huge disservice because it’s not just the kids faces that light up when he starts to do his thing”.
