Somewhere to share my thoughts, memories and news of the greatest form of entertainment.
Do you know since when and until when this tiger act worked? Thomas
I have always thought this was the same group that Mary worked with at Blackpool in 1978, but when I was looking through information today, this was apparently a new act, making it's debut. Carl Fisher showed the 1978 Blackpool group at Yarmouth in 1979.I know that Colin Timmins presented an 'ex Mary Chipperfield' tiger act on Circus Hoffman, but need to check on the year, as this could have been some of the group in my pics, or the previous tiger act.
Ok, I think the act that was in 1978 at Blackpool was the same act as the act that was in Monte Carlo in 1976 and at the circus world championship in 1977. I saw 2 videos of that act and didn't really liked the act. Regards,Thomas
Yes, that is correct Thomas. I have seen a video of this act on youtube, and it seemed very slow, with too much whip-cracking. The act at Yarmouth worked much faster, and the presentation was much quieter.
