With Ming returning to Comicpalooza again this year, May 12th through the 14th, Craig wanted to give a glimpse into what it is like going from con to con. Ming is everywhere and know everyone. So much so that Craig pitches a travel show, discusses why some of Ming’s co-stars are no-shows and and how he was “discovered” by Kevin Smith when he made a fansite for Clerks.

SPECIAL REPOST: Episode 215 – Amelie Robitaille – Cirque Du Soleil: Kurios / audio

Cirque Du Soleil

REPOST: This episode was originally released back on October 18th 2016.  I’m rereleasing it now as Cirque Du Soleil: Kurios opened here in Houston on the 6th of April and will be running until May 21st.  Head to cirquedisoleli.com/kurios for tickets.

Amelie Robitaille (@Cirque on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss Cirque Du Soleil and their new touring show Kurios. The reputation of Cirque Du Soleil is undeniable, so why did they agree to talk to Craig? Because the circus of the sun is coming to town and who better to talk to about life under the strange big top of than someone as strange as Craig? Thankfully, Amelie is used to talking to clowns. She and Craig discuss behind the scenes of The Cirque, how they plan shows, what they look for when auditioning performers, how they deal with injuries and more. It’s a unique look into the life of a circus performer!

What is Kurios?

In an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, a Seeker discovers that in order to glimpse the marvels that lie just below the surface, we must first learn to close our eyes.

In his larger-than-life curio cabinet, the Seeker is convinced that there exists a hidden, invisible world – a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams await. A collection of otherworldly characters suddenly steps into his makeshift mechanical world. When the outlandish, benevolent characters turn his world upside down with a touch of poetry and humor in an attempt to ignite the Seeker’s imagination, his curios jump to life one by one before his very eyes.

What if by engaging our imagination and opening our minds we could unlock the door to a world of wonders?

Tickets for Cirque Du Soleil’s new show Kurios is available now at https://www.cirquedusoleil.com/kurios/
