Interesting unicyclist

-> Idling on a 6 foot giraffe (16-inch wheel, semi-custom from Tom -> Miller, he

delivering his vendor’s pitch.

I’ve always known Straight-jacket’s and unicycle’s go together… just not at
the same time. :wink:

Maybe he looks like one of these NY area performers:

Will Shaw - Tall, largeish nose, curly red-brown hair with bald spot on top
(sorry Will if you’re reading this, those are your defining features!)

Joey Colon (Joey Joey) - short, olive-skinned, black hair, very Italian-looking
(so probably not Italian). Also known for sword-swallowing on a unicycle (I want
a picture for my web page!!!)

Did you happen to notice his costume (apart from the jacket)? We had a bloke
down here for a while doing that sort of routine about 5 years ago. He worked in
a Superman type suit. Think his name was Brittan, or something like that. Very
good show it was too.

Black pants, white ruffled shirt - pretty ordinary, considering. (Those of you

The latter, possibly. He was about my height - that’s about 5 feet 11 inches or
so with shoes. Thin.

I can’t imagine sword-swallowing on a unicycle.
