    Guido Fanzini's Thunderous Entertainment Haberdashery

    Guido Fanzini promises 40 mins of fantastic comedy and pure fun in a spoof-danger, comedy circus show.

    Guido Fanzini is as bald as a goose egg, but looks good in chiffon and lace and his Thunderous Entertainment Haberdashery promises 40 mins of fantastic comedy and pure fun in a spoof-danger, comedy circus show where the language of death-defying stunts is used at every turn, giving a comic edge to all the carry-on.

    Fanzini Productions is one of the foremost street arts companies based in the Republic of Ireland, touring nationally and internationally. Con Horgan, founder of Fanzini, has been performing since 1997 in a duo show Fanzini Brothers and performing solo as Professor Plunger.

    Is cuideachta atá maoinithe ag Comhairle Ealaíon na hÉireann léiriúcháin anzini agus tá ceithre dhámhachtain tionscadail faighte acu. Mar thoradh ar na gradaim seo bhí ceithre thaispeántas a raibh moladh critice acu, Cannonball Circus, Guido Fanzini’s Impossible Circus, an tOllamh Plunger agus Circus Jukebox. ​

    D'oibrigh Fanzini Productions le máistir-chlowns, John Lee ó Fuse Performance Company, agus le Joe Dieffenbacher ó Nakupelle, Mooky Cornish, John Towsen, stiúrthóir Arne Zaslove, Philippe Gaulier, agus an clown a bhuaigh duaiseanna Fraser Hooper. ​

    Tá teastas clowning faighte ag Con freisin ó Jango Edwards ó Institiúid Clowning Nouvelle in Barcelona. Is cainteoirí líofa Gaeilge iad an dá Bhráthair Fanzini agus seinneann siad go rialta i nGaeilge. Tugadh cuireadh dóibh imeachtaí Gaeilge fhéile Naomh Pádraig 2014 a choimead agus chuir siad puball sorcais Gaeilge “Cirque Du Gael” ar fáil mar chuid de cheiliúradh an Big Day Out i gCearnóg Mhuirfean. ​

    Tá siad maoinithe ag Ealaíon an Gaeltachta. Is iad Fanzini Productions bunaitheoirí agus léiritheoirí Fhéile Sorcais Náisiúnta na hÉireann gach bliain. Is í an fhéile seo an sárthaispeántas náisiúnta don sorcas comhaimseartha agus bíonn líne éagsúil ann gach bliain de na taibheoirí sorcais náisiúnta agus idirnáisiúnta is fearr. Féile iomlán uathúil d’Éirinn, inrochtana, ach eaglach, comhaimseartha agus dúshlánach, leanann an fhéile seo de bheith ag socrú an chaighdeáin le haghaidh taibhiú sorcais comhaimseartha in Éirinn.
