Yet another busker post. This act is a cheeky and slightly dirty humour/juggling/contortionist act. The emphasis is on his contortionism, followed by his humour. At one point he saw a lady shooting him. So he gets on his hands and knees, puts a bullwhip in his mouth, and wiggles his derriere at the shooter (I decided it was a little risque for this post). He’s great at improv humour.
His contortionism looked both impressive and somewhat painful. For example, he performed contortionist pushups to warm up. Then he linked his hands together and without letting go or shifting his grip brought them 360 degrees around his body. Then he takes an unstrung tennis raquet, and despite some small but very painful obstructions gets his entire body through it, without losing any body parts nor his shorts. Al had a good rapport with the audience and was what they call a cheeky bugger, and this combined with his technical skills worked very well.
This is the beginning of his attempt to got through a tennie raquet. His right shoulder looks dislocated and bent right over. The trick now is to get the arm back to a normal configuration and the raquet under the armpit.
His voice became a little wheezy, and his volume dropped for some reason. This makes corsets look loose and comfortable. I wonder what would have happened if someone tickled him, or if he had the hiccups.
Al gets it succesfully past the left nipple ring. Now he has to get up the gumption to pass the right nipple (twang? rip?). One wonders about contortionists wearing body jewelry, but with that avocation maybe masochism is a plus?
The final major barrier, composed of the two peaks of the derriere range. After what has gone before, it was a piece of cake. Some young ladies were betting Al would lose his shorts. I think he held them in place using duct tape.
