Comedic daredevil Bello Nock returns to Biloxi to headline limited summer engagement
Bello is Back! Comedic daredevil and circus star Bello Nock returns to MGM Resorts International’s Beau Rivage for the resort’s summer production show FUNAMBULA. The theatrical circus sensation will perform a four-week limited engagement in the Beau Rivage Theatre May 28- June 23.
FUNAMBULA, a French word that means tightrope walker, will feature seventh-generation circus performer Bello Nock and an international cast of world-class acrobats, aerialists and artists that push the boundaries and ascend their art to unparalleled heights. FUNAMBULA delivers thrills and laughs with more than a dozen cirque-style acts to entertain and inspire the entire family.
FUNAMBULA is produced by Dreamcast Entertainment exclusively for MGM Resorts International and marks the 20th anniversary of the two powerhouse entertainment brands working together. “A collaboration that began in 2002 with ‘BALAGAN,’ has presented more than a dozen cirque-style productions, each with its own theme, acts, costumes, music and performers,” said DreamCast Entertainment President Misha Matorin.
“Circus artists provoke wonder and emotion and defy words and descriptions. Several of the acts in FUNAMBULA have appeared on America’s Got Talent and each of these artists are stars in their own right. We are confident this show will not only leave audience members on the edge of their seats, it will bring crowds to their feet,” added Matorin.
FUNAMBULA’s most-celebrated performer is the amazingly-talented Bello Nock. Named “America’s Best Clown” by TIME magazine, Bello Nock’s stunts, humor and charisma took him to the quarterfinals of season 12 and season 15 of America’s Got Talent and a finalist in Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions in 2019. He made history in 2012 when he completed Mississippi’s first-ever tightrope walk 360 feet high in the air atop Beau Rivage. He’s hung by his toes under a helicopter, holds a Guinness World Record for his wire walk over a cruise ship at sea and was awarded the “Gold Clown,” the circus world’s highest honor, by Princess Stephanie at the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival.
