"This was considered a 'top rate' performance by staff and pupils. Generated much positive discussion from the children. Well done." -St Josephs School, Hopetoun 1998 Festival Shows!
An extremely professional and silly clown, DAG DROPSY performs his ridiculous blend of comedy circus skills to create a perfect match of verbal buffoonery and physical dexterity that will entertain and excite all ages and cultures.
Be warned that DAG does not give out lollies or balloons; what he does do is give heartwarming performances which have led to critical acclaim throughout Australia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and Nth America.
DAG was an original founding member of Melbourne's Circus Maximus and the guest international performer for the 1995 Summer Entertainment Season at Hong Kong's famous Ocean Park.
DAG DROPSY'S flexibility and diversity have led over the last 18 years to performances in places as diversified as Aboriginal communities in the Australian desert, festivals in the Canadian Rockies, a Vietnamese refugee camp in Hong Kong, and innumerable school performances in Canada, Singapore, and every state of his Australian homeland.
