Two blogs in one day!
As I won't be blogging as much over the next fortnight I thought I would update you on my visit to Cirque Surreal: the whole performance was amazing, apart from one bit which I will get to shortly, the highlight for me was the trapeze artist whose strength and flexibility wowed the audience, she also had abs to die for. The contortionist dancing on points was equally impressive and the finale act showed utter bravery - you really had to see it to believe it.
Personally I am not a fan of clowns, I find them slightly creepy and don't really understand the usually predictable act. Cirque Surreal's clown was better than any I had seen before that was until he pulled some poor bloke from the audience and started making fun of him, I commented to Sue that "that is my idea of hell"! No sooner had I uttered the words when I saw the clown approaching me whilst gesturing towards the stage, I tried to refuse but he wasn't taking no for an answer - Hell began! The poor guy who was already on stage had the job of using the cymbals, this in itself was awful but I was presented with a microphone and asked to do an impression of Michael Jackson grabbing his crotch whilst pelvic thrusting and screeching through the mic.
The whole episode seemed to last for an eternity, I could see Sue, Rose & Josh laughing hysterically at my horror. I should point out that close up the clown was actually a very attractive fit young gentleman but this did not compensate for the sheer embarrassment of the whole experience. Next time the clown does his rounds I will be hiding under a chair.
If you haven't seen the Cirque Surreal already you really should go!
