The Greatest Show On Earth 250 Years Of The Circus
Philip Astley, the main character in the hit film ‘The Greatest Showman’ created the circus in the 18th century by pulling together the world's most strange and wonderful acts. Astley’s showmanship allowed him to present the unseen before performances to excited crowds of hundreds of people.
Astley’s traditional UK acts included equestrian showcases with cavalrymen riding their horses while performing an array headstands and flips, riders even rode horses while swarmed by bees to shock audience members. After the successes of his first shows, Philip Astley took the circus to new heights and just like us, took circus to global audiences.
Philip Astley discovered the popularity of producing a show that delivered the shock factor and the unheard of. This was the ultimate reason for the success of his famous circus. He left guests at his events in awe of crazy, never seen before, entertainment. In the 21st century it can become tricky to find new acts and performance options that audiences haven’t already viewed on YouTube or other social networking websites, however, there is still lots of entertainment options out there that your audience members would not have seen.
