Probably the funniest performer I saw at the Fringe this year, this is 'The' Sam Willis, an antipodean contortionist/ juggler/ balancing act/ comic.
I've seen street artists play up for the camera before, but this is the first time I've ever become part of the show After snapping away for a few minutes, the shutter tripped after a mistke he made, and before I knew it, the camera was taken off me, as Sam jumped about shouting "oh sure, snap at me when I make a b******s of it why don't ya? How d'you like it?!"
Then he 'threw' it back at me, keeping hold of the strap. I've never heard a louder gasp from an audience, and I've never been more glad to have accidental damage cover!
Check versions 2 & 3 for his results. Version 4 is a tighter crop, for those who wish to see it. My guess is that the thumnbail's going to make this flop.
