Flyin’ Bob

From the giant rainbow skywriter, through hat juggling, echo talking, chair balancing, and 7 foot unicycle, to near disaster on the highwire, Flyin’ Bob; balancer, juggler, professional fool and highly skilled goofball, takes you on a visit to the one man three ring circus in his mind.

He views the world as filled with toys, and tries to convince his audience to see it the same way…

The most common reaction after seeing the show is, “This guy has too much time on his hands!”

Flyin’ Bob considers this the highest possible compliment…

Flyin’ Bob, aka Bob Palmer, lives in the greatest country on Earth: Canada (yay) and lives in Sylvan Lake, AB. He was born in Nova Scotia and grew up in Saskatoon. He has performed as a guitar player in many rock bands, taught school, coached spring board diving and had a huge number of “real jobs” (none of which really took). He finally and luckily heard the call of the variety performer life and has never looked back…except to see what was stuck to his shoe…

For 30 years, across Canada and in eighteen countries around the world, Bob Palmer has performed as a juggler, tightwire walker, comic, and musician in every venue imaginable. The street, stage, corporations, national television shows and festivals in Europe, Japan, Singapore, Australia, Korea, Israel, Egypt, and the US have all experienced Flyin’ Bob’s unique brand of comedy and physical theatre. He has toured extensively through the Alberta, Saskatchewan, and BC School systems, and has performed at many outdoor and corporate events throughout Canada. He also presents Circus Residencies in Schools and directs circus camps in communities around the country.

 


This beautiful land on which we gather, play and live, is the ancestral, traditional and unceded territory of the Syilx (Okanagan) peoples, who have been here for thousands of years.
