King Richard's Faire - Jaques Ze Whipper

          I went to King Richard's Faire this weekend. It was a lot of fun. I will be doing a few posts of the various events we saw and photos from around the faire! 

         First up, Jaques Ze Whipper! Jaques performs a show with whips. He does songs and various tricks, including a flaming whip. 



Jaques injured himself and had the coolest crutch! A peg-leg that he could kneel on. Performing on that was impressive!








Using the whip, he accurately chopped down this spaghetti! 


Look! Pieces of spaghetti flying off to the left!

Ta-da!

Biiiiig needle through a balloon.




And pull the thread through! 

"Audience volunteer" aka his assistant since he is broken. 

AND off comes the shirt!

For a good flaming whip, it first needs a good soak. 

The first crack is the one you want to catch!






Ooh! A little close for comfort there!
