You don’t even need to speak French. i always wondered where they got their performers from, now I know. Nothing like paying $70 for a ticket to watch someone skate in a funny costume. I can do that for free in Oregon.

Because we want to have the web site with the most Claus Grabke and Daniel Gesmer references:

And the always popular Four Wheels Down movie.

And another video from another site where it is labeled as “Gay Skater.” I’m pretty sure that’s not what the title is. Check out Dan’s interview from Big Brother (link above) to see his thoughts on Gesmer-bashing.

  1. Rodney! Rodney! Rodney! Or was it Per who skated in whiteface?

  2. Thanks for the heads-up! I sure hope Cirque picks me over Claus Grabke…

    Actually, I had some talks with Cirque du Soleil many, many years ago about helping them create a wheels-oriented show that they were thinking about. They never went anywhere with the idea.

    I have a few friends who’ve performed with Cirque – one a clown, the other a singer. Their experiences were mixed…

  3. Wow, Tod Swank and Dan Gesmer have both graced our comments. I’m speechless.
