Purple People Comedy & Circus

An internationally award-winning, hilarious, high energy, husband and wife duo performing acrobatic stunts and outrageous comedy; all wrapped in bright and zany costumes!

This internationally award-winning performance features high energy circus stunts mixed with laugh out loud comedy that is great for children and even better for adults!

The show features Tarrabelle & Rusty, a loving husband and wife duo who have been together for 10 very happy years. They work their way through myriad circus stunts including whip-cracking, hand-balancing, fire juggling, ball juggling, hula hooping, fire hula-hooping, acrobatics, partner acrobatics and contortion in their journey to seek the most extreme stunt finale, a stunt that no-one else in the world performs!

This final stunt combines all of the different disciplines displayed within the show to come to an exciting and memorable closure to the show, all the while keeping the adults and kids on the edge of their seat with comedy and hilarity. “A distinct cheekiness and vitality that is thoroughly entertaining…Will not disappoint!” – The West Australian
