GENTLEMEN CHIMPS

GENTLEMEN CHIMPS Captured in the wild some years ago, these provoking primates have been trained to act human, although it doesn't always quite work out as it did during their cultivation process! These champion chimps are often seen scurrying around venues, sniffing out anything interesting, picking fleas off people and scratching themselves in inappropriate places. They are a very comical and interactive act and work brilliantly as meet and greet, walkabout, or even angle grinding! If you book a few of them they can even have a tea party. If you want to up the ante’ certain members of the troupe can be booked as a World class acrobatic act – and this often finds its way into our larger Circus performances.
