You must see Benny B - an absolute delight!
Originally an Electrical Engineer, Ben Bryant decided to follow his dreams and run away to the circus.
Now with more than 10 years professional experience, Ben Bryant is one of Australia’s most creative and innovative comic circus performers. His ability to combine graceful movement, high level circus skills and absurd humour with ease makes him a truly unique performer.
With a strong emphasis on physical comedy, he has the ability to entertain any audience – regardless of age or language and is comfortable performing with or without speaking. This ability has seen him perform as a feature artist in 27 countries around the world including Jordan, Poland, Korea, China, Croatia, Singapore, UAE, Germany, Switzerland and now Sweden!
Ben is a graduate of NICA (National Institute of Circus Arts): Australia’s only full time Circus degree program. This was followed by 3 months of intensive training at the Beijing International Arts School in China. He previously studied physical Theatre with Frank Theatre Company in Brisbane for 2 years.
At the 2008 Melbourne Fringe Festival, Ben was awarded the “Circus Oz” award for a self-directed silent clown circus show - 'Happy Birthday to Me'.
He loves rock climbing and a good game of chess (although not simultaneously...)
