Egemen Ustun’s show is a high-energy comedy show that will make you laugh and leave you in awe. With 10 years of performing experience and over 1000 shows under his belt, his death-defying fire show has brought a new modern twist to entertainment. At just 24 years old his unbelievable athleticism brings forward an amazing fire show combining comedy, dancing, and acrobatics to excite the audience in a way they wouldn’t believe was possible. The show includes a fire diabolo, an impressive fire staff routine alongside a 15-foot fire breath ON-TOP of a 3-wheel, 7-foot unicycle. A fresh young f ... ace filled with effortless and contagious excitement, bringing top-notch energy to any venue! A smaller-space show is also available with fire juggling balls, fire juggling torches, and a fire devil stick!
My name is Egemen Ustun and I am a street performer from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. My parents and I immigrated from Turkey to Canada when I was 4 years old. When I was growing up, I would always see buskers performing in the streets of the ByWard Market, and I thought they were so amazing that I learned how to juggle and unicycle all by myself, just because I thought it was interesting and it kept me busy growing up. When I was 15 years old, a random street performer told me that he could construct a solo street show for me if I paid him. So I did and performed my first show on the streets of m ... y hometown. Just me, by myself, in the heart of the ByWard Market. Little did I know back then, but that was the start of something big. All of the other performers did not want me on this spot because I was young and inexperienced and I would take away from their ‘prime-time’ for ‘money-making.’ In their eyes, I was just another performer on the pitch who didn’t deserve to be there. Yet, I did not let this stop me. I was getting better and better every single show and they were beginning to take notice. As time went on, they started to accept me a little more and even give me some quick tips and pointers to improve my act. Since those early days, I have developed my show to great heights. I have now been performing for over 8 years, and I have performed at some prestigious international comedy and busker festivals as well! Including, but not limited to, the ‘Just For Laughs' International Comedy Festival (2018 & 2022), the Dundas International Busker Festival (2018), and also won first place in the ‘Hottest Busker’ competition for my local Ottawa radio station which gave me a spot in the Ottawa International Busker Festival in 2019!

Meet the Act
Growing up as an only child I was always looking for ways to entertain myself. Before I found my fire show, I was a competitive tennis player in the hopes of going pro one day! And I used to act and was very fond of magic. As I got older, I transitioned everything I've learned into my fire show. I recently just graduated from McGill University in 2020 and I studied Kinesiology. Now that I'm no longer a student, my main thing is trying to be the biggest performer in the world one day! My workdays consist of either doing shows, training, working out, editing videos, or anything business-related. ... I got a fire lit inside me and I just wanna go go go! I feel incredibly excited to see where and how far my passion can take me!

Are you looking into getting into circus street performing? Don't know where to start? This seminar gives you the rundown of everything you can expect when going into large-scale street performances.

There are so many little secrets in order to be a successful street performer, that goes way beyond tricks. This seminar will be covering the comedy aspect, crowd management, crowd psychology, equipment needed, show structure, tip collection (virtual and in-person), and the hat line (The part where you explain that your show is funded by the crowd tipping at the end).
