Circus Bullwhip Act!

Circus Bullwhip Act!

Last week I went to the Ringling Brother’s Circus and saw their Fully Charged (gold tour) show.  This is a One Ring Circus show, if you’ve only ever seen Three Ring Circus shows then it can be a bit underwhelming.  However if you are a whip nerd (like me) there is a bullwhip act in the show!

Alfonso Lopez does knife throwing and bullwhip in the first half of the show!  Here are some horrible cellphone pics of it:

The whip act is good, nothing super crazy or innovative in it.  It’s a good solid arena whip act!  It’s also a good example of how to play a whip act to a stadium!  His knife throwing is a good example of how to build / sell an act.  Most whip crackers would benefit from seeing him if they ever intend on doing a live performance.

I’ve also listed an 8 foot INDY style bullwhip on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=221295536515

Indiana Jones style bullwhip
This is a great opportunity to get an awesome deal on this bullwhip!  Also if you are trying to put together and Indiana Jones costume for Halloween, this will arrive by then (if you live in the USA).
