FREE Comedy Water Balloon Gladiator Fight

One of the top acts. Warm-hearted, wordless and lovely.
            — The Press, New Zealand (World Busker Festival)

EVERYONE LOVES A WATER BALLOON FIGHT!
Direct from New York City, dramatic opera music scores this hysterical battle filled with 100 flying water balloons and ridiculous comedy.

WITH NO WORDS, Seth and Christina create a laughter-filled zone of wet fun, encouraging two audience members to be mighty gladiators. See why Waterbombs has thrilled crowds in over 25 countries.

The Company
Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone met at a circus in Afghanistan, were engaged while street performing in Scotland, married in China, and occasionally go home to New York City. Since 2005 they have performed in over 25 countries, competed in international circus festivals, starred on the Big Apple Circus, and appeared on a postage stamp. They live in Harlem, New York City.
