WATERBOMBS!
Performed and conceived by: Seth Bloom, Christina Gelsone
Draw your swords! A hysterical water balloon gladiator show with comic antics, flying water balloons, and loud opera music. Using no words, „Waterbombs!” is a gut-busting, interactive comedy show that has thrilled crowds around the globe. No other show like this exists - 60 water balloons, 2 volunteer gladiators, active audiences, and 2 funny clowns. It started with a simple question: can we use war (instead of love) as a base for a silent comedy street show, and grew into an epic water balloon fight that turns audience volunteers into heroes, not victims. Our fearless performers, Seth and Christina, met at a circus in Afghanistan, were engaged while street performing in Scotland, and married in China. They have performed in over 20 countries, competed in international circus festivals, juggled on Letterman, starred on the Big Apple Circus, and were featured in The New York Times. When they’re not on tour, they live in Harlem, New York City.
