Need a light?


Fire Breathing is a sure way to get peoples attention.

Fire breathing is the act of creating a fireball by breathing a fine mist of fuel over an open flame. Proper technique and the correct fuel create the illusion of danger to enhance the novelty of fire breathing, while reducing the risk to health and safety. When using the correct fuel, it will only light when sprayed into a fine mist increasing the surface area of the fuel so that the fuel/oxygen/heat ratio is balanced enough to cause combustion.*

Fire Eating


Fire Eating is an act of finesse, another crowd pleaser Mr. Crispy is one of the top fire eaters in the country.

Fire eating was a common part of HinduSadhu, and Fakir performances to show spiritual attainment. It became a part of the standard sideshow acts in the late 1880s and is often seen as one of the entry-level skills for sideshow performers, although skilled fire performers, such as those who can utilise the difficult and dangerous vapour transfers and produce large breaths of fire are regarded as equals in the circus community for their skill and devotion to their art.*

Fire Poi

Poi originated with the Māori people of New Zealand, where it is still practiced today. Poi has also gained a following in many other countries. The expansion of poi culture has led to a significant evolution of the styles practiced, the tools used, and the definition of the word “poi.”*

Fire Wire/Wazzer Bag

Fire Wire was once known as a wazzer bag, it is similar to poi but instead of burning fuel steel wool is placed in a cage making the performer into a giant sparkler.

The Fire Cube


The Fire Cube

The fire cube was designed by Mr. Crispy and Jacon, it is a variation on the spinning cube commonly seen in circuses.  This prop is only suitable for large outdoor areas.





Another classic fire dancing prop, the fire staff is excellent for a Luau themed event.
