What flea Circus do you have if any? What would you recommend?
How did you make your's or did you buy on what do you think of it?
I know of the home made flea circus vid by Walt Noon and I have got it.
If I am to go down that route I am afraid I will never finish it.
I think simple may be best. What do you use, what routeen do you use?
This is a project I like to take down of my shelf again.

Dear Mario,

Get The Famous Flea Act by Tom Palmer. This stuff you can build out of cardboard, masking tape, a cigar box and some paint. If it goes over with your audience, you can build one of the better ones. I had a great deal of fun building mine, but it does take a lot of time.

Yours,

Paul

A Chuck Caputo Automated Flea Circus #6593041979 is currently on eBay with just $430 winning so far. You can probably get it with a $500 bid which is a great deal.

Anything by Bob Lunn, wonderful entertainer now sadly gone.
His lighting a match with a ping pong ball and Fred the performing Flea routines are a must for a comedy flea circus and so simple to make up.
Also back to Ken Brookes Wardour Street studio do a trace on the Fred Flea routine he sold with Nick Lewin and Roy Johnson add ons its great and would be new for todays speckies.

Ken.
For a real McCoy try Testo`s it was offered to me around six years ago so could still be up for grabs.

The Alberti Flea Circus is a terrific act. He is a master. Please see:

The basic approach here is the Tom Palmer Famous Flea Act book.

Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

Here is a link to the only instructions I have found for building a flea circus.

It is Walt Noon's site. http://www.noonco.com/flea/

I recently purchased the DVD and am currently looking for a good suitcase to start building.

If you want classy looking Flea Circuses built in either real old cigar boxes or Mossman luggage trunks go here...
