TIME Magazine called Bello Nock, “America’s Best Clown”, but he’s more that that! He’s also an amazing world-class daredevil.
Bello’s unique talent is combining jaw-dropping daredevil stunts and hysterical comedy! His motto? “No audience member should need more than the edge of his seat!” He’s amazed over 40 million people in his live performances over the last decade. He’s the first person in Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s 140-year+ history to have a production named after him. “Bellobration” featured a cast of hundreds of human performers, elephants, horses, dogs and audience members all donning wigs of Bello’s trademark hair! The show set attendance records at Madison Square Gardens.
Prince-and-PrincessBello has a Guinness World Record for his wire walk over a cruise ship at sea and he was awarded the “Gold Clown”, the circus world’s highest honor, by Princess Stephanie at the 2011 Monte Carlo Int. Circus Festival! In January of 2009, Bello was the youngest person ever to be inducted into the “Circus Ring of Fame”. And he is the 2012 Ringling Museum “Circus Celebrity of the Year”!
The Wall Street Journal has praised Bello’s “brand-name level of recognition” and called him, “The Power Clown”. The New York Daily News said Bello “might be the greatest athlete ever to set foot in the World’s Most Famous Arena” (Madison Square Gardens). The New York Times did a two-page, full-color feature on his one-of-a-kind thrill creation – The Double Wheel of Steel. And another one of his inventions, the Aqua-trap, is in its fifth season at Sea World-San Diego. Bello is also a producer. He worked as a producer on Cheap Trick’s “Dream Police” show and a consultant on their “Sgt. Pepper Live” show. He is also co-producer of the symphonic project, “Cirque Musica”.
Bello’s repertoire includes virtually every major thrill act possible! He is the “World’s Most Versatile Comedy Performer”! Bello has done everything from hanging by his toes on a trapeze under a helicopter over the Statue of Liberty, to repelling off of Madison Square Gardens! They say “the sky is the limit”, but for Bello, it’s just the beginning!
