Normally I call it “frivolous Friday” but this one might need to be called “fantastic Friday.”
Last night I went to the NC state fair here in Asheville, and I happened to hear about a human cannon ball doing a show at 9.
OBVIOUSLY I’M STICKING AROUND.
It. Was. Fantastic.
I got the whole thing on tape.
Lots of bits of business that I noticed.
It’s a family thing: those are his two daughters & son helping with the act.
Production value: notice the up-lights on the top of the cannon so the guy is lit while he’s doing his ballyhoo.
And a bunch of other stuff I’ll leave you to discover.
So give it a watch and marvel at the human spirit.
