While channel-surfing recently, I caught part of the presentation "Cirque du Soleil: Saltimbanco" on BRAVO. Even though I consider mimes deadly even in small doses, I was riveted by this incredibly gorgeous pair of scantily-clad Colt Studios-type hunks (one slightly bigger smooth-skinned blond, one hairy-chested brunet) performing a balancing act. I had also caught them earlier on "Penn & Teller" while channel-surfing.

But WHO ARE THEY??? I always miss the name of the act! Can anyone help me identify them? (The IMDb listing for "Saltimbanco" just lists everyone as "performer", with no distinctions.) Better yet, does anyone know where to find pictures of them on the Internet?

TIA.

Hmm, I plugged "Saltimbanco" into a search engine and got about 100 hits. Let's start here...are these the guys?

Here's the program;

The guys in the photo you linked are definitely hot (and TWINS, yet), but they're not the two performers I'm thinking of. The guys I saw on TV were definitely not twins-- and neither had facial hair or tattoos. Oddly enough, they seemed to be doing the SAME act as shown in the photo, with the same costuming.

Could it be that the photo you posted is from a touring company that uses a different set of performers for the handbalancing act than the ones that appeared on BRAVO and "Penn & Teller"?

BTW, I had already run "Saltimbanco" and "Cirque du Soleil" through a search engine, and came up with zip as far as identifying who I saw. I was hoping someone caught the full TV shows I saw bits of and remembered their names. (But thanks for replying.)

X-Nico:

I have a copy of the "Saltimbanco" performance that you might have seen on BRAVO!, and I know which performers you are referring to. They are different from the ones above. I'll see if I can figure out who they are.

Any how, I'd take all four if I had the chance! Cirque du Soleil has the sexiest performers, and definitely dresses them to advantage. Cirque definitely makes themselves more than a kiddie show! YUMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW, Cirque du Soileil is quite a big operation, with several shows on tour constantly, plus two different non-touring productions in Las Vegas, and a new one being developed in Florida at 'Mouse World'.

Maybe you'll find out more about the studs here:

X-Nico, maybe you might treat us all with a return to comics with a rendering of "Cirque Erotique"?

CIAO! D J

You can see the above mentioned balancing act at "Mystere" in Las Vegas at the Treasure Island hotel. I've seen it twice and the guys are not brothers and were different each time I saw it. The "O" show at the Bellagio in Vegas is very pretentious and less fun, but has beautiful male and female swimmers from all counties of the globe. Only problem with "Cirque" productions is that they use so much makeup and mascara on the guys they all look like queens.

DJ, thanks for the comment about my comics work; however, I don't see returning to it anytime in the future. Too many rip-offs, too many bad memories. The immortal Tom of Finland once did a book called "Circus" that featured the type of thing you're suggesting. I'm not sure, but it might be available from his foundation or in one of his book collections.

And thanks to all who've given me input on Cirque du Soleil.

X-Nico,

I haven't seen the production of Saltimbanco you're talking about, but last December I saw Mystere and got the program. I've uploaded the pictures of the two guys from that show (who sound kind of like the ones you describe). There are three pictures (the first two are pretty dark, sorry that's how they are in the book, and the third is the two guys' cast photos from the back of the book). Incidentally, the cast photos don't look much like the actual guys. We were in the first row and they handbalanced right in front of us (best part of the show, IMO, and to Mark who's obviously seen the show, thank heavens I wasn't picked to be the baby...I got a little wet though).

Here's the pics:

[deleted the pics from my site to make room for other things...sorry to those who missed 'em]

You know, when I was looking around the net on this topic I thought I ran across a website by the two guys you posted, Derek. But now I can't find it. Here's a small picture that I do have. Guess they're brothers. From the looks of that blond boy, maybe even sisters. TeeHee.

Saltimbanco is performing right now in my neck of the woods. (Brisbane, Aust) The local network screened a special about the circus, and the show, and featured the 'twin European' act. Ummmmp...veery nice, especially the brother who balances on top. I'm going to see them next week so looking forward to that.
