Get weird, get kooky, get sure-fire entertained
IN A a world in which the word 'unique' is applied without discrimination, Bruce Airhead's act almost defies description.
You could call it the metamorphosis of a man into a six-foot balloon. Whatever it is, he's certain to provide an explosive opening or climax to any event.
While working as a children's entertainer, Bruce and a friend idly speculated on whether a human being could fit inside a balloon. From that apparently hypothetical conversation, Bruce Airhead was born.
With a voice-activated pump, Bruce inflates a huge balloon and then climbs inside. First his head disappears, then three limbs - leaving the balloon standing on one leg. He finally disappears completely, only to re-emerge seconds later transformed into a living rock'n'roll legend (or a host of other famous figures or themed characters).
And he is on his way to maclean with a bunch of talented buskers.
A gaggle of very weird and wonderful buskers will take to the Maclean Hotel stage on Sunday between 3-7pm. Billed as a family show, organisers are promising a small taste of the Coffs Harbour International Buskers and Comedy Festival on that afternoon.
Entry is free but in true busking tradition, the acts will offer their hat to the audience at the completion of the show.
