We love going to unique shows as a family and Circo Comedia looks like a great one! I'm pretty sure it's going to pull lots of laughs out of my kids and they're going to love seeing these fun stunts.
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is proud to present Circo Comediaas part of Citizens Bank Children’s Theater Series. Performances take place March 5 through 12, 2017 at six performance locations throughout the area.
Unpredictable thrills, side-splitting comedy and daredevil stunts are the signature style of Circo Comedia starring the fantastic duo Jean Saucier & Patrick Cote from Montreal as they perform their distinctive style of humor, acrobatic tricks, daring feats, magic and eccentricity. Following in the tradition of the Quebec Circus, Jean Saucier, master equilibrist, juggler, trick cyclist, acrobat and magician performs his feats from dizzying heights while Patrick Cote, clown, expert roller skater and drummer, innocently tries his best to be the (imperfect) assistant. Delirously funny. Filled with unforgettable moments.
Circo Comediastars duo Jean Saucier and Patrick Côté. Montreal natives, Saucier and Côté perform acrobatic tricks and daring feats topped with their humor and eccentricity. Saucier, an equilibrist, juggler, trick cyclist, acrobat and magician, performs from great heights while Côté, a clown, expert roller skater and drummer, acts as his somewhat imperfect assistant. The show follows the tradition of the Quebec Circus.Standard Free Holder, raved, “Their fast paced entertaining show was an adventure for all ages. Stunts and tricks were enjoyed by the sell-out crowd who found it hard not to laugh, as the talented duo reached out to involve the audience in their routines.”
Jean Saucier has been performing since a young age. At 18, he attended the École National du Cirque de Montréal. He was later hired by Cirque du Soleil. From 1999-2006, Saucier performed with his first Circo Comedia partner, Lawrence Smythe. In 2004, Saucier began performing Circo Comedia with current partner Patrick Côté.
Patrick Côté also trained at École National due Cirque du Montréal. Since the late 1980s, Côté has been creating comedic characters and performances for an array of audiences. He joined Saucier in Circo Comedia in 2004. For more information, visit www.circocomedia.com.
