Jim and Dr Nick

6th August 2023 2.00 pm
Two of Ireland’s top street entertainers bring their unique talents together in this street circus show with a comic display of juggling, uni-cycling, fire juggling and ladder balancing. A problematic PA system, a fear of heights combined with an inability to concentrate and total lack of forward planning, make Jim and Nick the perfect double act to juggle fire on 8 foot unicycles. Full of laughs and stuffed with skills this act will be enjoyed by young and old alike. Everyone will be laughing.... just not necessarily at the same things. Festival wristband required
