Will Chamberlain, Festival of Fools
"It was an absolute pleasure to have Circus Fergus at the Festival of Fools. Our audiences are used to seeing the best of street theatre from around the world and I was delighted that Circus Fergus fitted the bill - and so were the audiences.

Sinead, Premiere Circus, Belfast
"A very capable performer with great skills in juggling and giraffe unicycle. He can really draw a great crowd through jokes and creating great spectacles on his giraffe unicycling and juggling fire. In his show there is lots of witty humour and impressive tricks that the audience love. Its a great street show for both adults and kids and certain to attract and engage crowds at any event."
Tony McDermott, Project Manager, Harold’s Cross Community Festival
"Brian O'Connell has been an essential part of the Harold's Cross Festival since its inception in 2010. In each of these four festivals Brian has left an indelible impression on all who have seen his performances. While maintaining a very high standard of performance, he varies his act each year that always entertains and is popular with all age groups. I have no hesitation recommending Brian and look forward to his contributing to many festivals in Harold's Cross in the future."
Perry Ogden, Executive Chair, Sports Against Racism Ireland
"Brian O’Connell (Circus Fergus) has worked as an entertainer at the annual SARI intercultural Soccerfest for the past three years and has really helped create a fun atmosphere and kept our crowds entertained when they weren't watching the games. He presented an amazing show, delivering top-notch skill with down to earth humour. He even helped us arrange some circus workshops which kept the kids busy. I really felt he had our best interests at heart, before and after the tournament."

Our one and a half year old daughter was in a trance of amazement for the entire performance...never seen anything to hold her attention for so long. Then when we went back to her grandparents she told them, with great excitement, all about what she had seen (waving her hands up in the air to show how you were juggling). Last night as I put her to bed, 3 months later and out of nowhere, she started talking about 'The Man juggling on the bike'. I ...
