Carlo Pellegrini 2009 by Deborah Grosmark

The Field Library presents a Library Live performance starring Carlo Pellegrini, a former ringmaster with the Big Apple Circus, on Thursday, August 25th at 6:30 pm. Carlo, a.k.a. Mr. Amazing, will juggle, spin plates and even walk on a tightrope! This FREE circus show is perfect for children of all ages – and their families.

Pellegrini is co-founder and Artistic Director of Amazing Grace Circus. Mr. Amazing performed for many years as White Clown, Acrobat and Ringmaster with Big Apple Circus, The Royal Lichtenstein Circus, and Piccolo Circus NYC.

Pellegrini is a dedicated advocate for circus arts education. In fact, he holds the unofficial world’s record for teaching the most number of people how to juggle three balls at one time!

Don’t miss this chance to see a FREE show by one of New York’s funniest, most talented circus performers and teachers!
