Leapin’ Louie — a true clown of the modern west!
An excentric cowboy from the old west is lost in a modern city. A very original show full of physical comedy, high energy improvisation, and world class trick roping and whip cracking.
Leapin’ Louie, The Roping Fool has played in 28 different counties across the world, including many of the most important European stret theater festivals. In 2012 Leapin’ Louie travelled to festivals in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Australia, and all over the Western USA.
“It’s the Wild West lasso-wielding clown Leapin’ Louie Lichtenstein who’s going to make the $20 price tag well worth your time. The man is freaking amazing. The crowd lost it after every one of his acts—from the 20-foot diameter lasso he swung overhead while riding a super-tall unicycle, to the bull whip he cracked at the front row’s faces.” –Portland Mercury
