The Carson & Barnes Circus reported to local Historic City News that they will be appearing Thursday, May 27th, 2010 at the St. Johns County Fairgrounds located at 5840 State Rd. 207 in Elkton.
Each performance lasts about two hours with two show times scheduled; 4:30 p.m. and again at 7:30 p.m.
Freddy “Alex” Acero, will be staring in this year’s all new 74th edition of the circus with his hilarious high bounding feats on the trampoline. Alex is recognizable as the award- winning “King of Circus Comedy”.
Alex reveals that his fun loving athletic character was inspired by his friends and a love for the sport of soccer, which he plays whenever he gets the chance. Both of his parents and one of his brothers have also worked in circuses in South America, so Alex grew up surrounded by clowns and performers and was drawn to them from the start.
He cites his father, whom he describes as “his hero,” with instilling in him, the willpower and desire to “become famous”. These traits have helped Alex to bring his talents to America where he first achieved recognition as part of “Clown Alley” on the Ringling Brothers Show.
Alex feels that one of his important contributions to the Carson & Barnes Circus and its audiences is his abundant joy. He is thrilled to be a part of this new first-of-its-kind tent concept and show presentation, which blends over eight decades of circus tradition with up-close audience viewing, achieving a new height in quality family entertainment.
When Alex is not working or playing soccer, he enjoys going to Latin Clubs and has a passion for digital photography. He uses his computer to edit his shots and record some of his performances, journeys and once-in-a lifetime adventures.
Alex is very articulate and fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, and English, appearing with many celebrities on national TV & Radio. He has lived and worked throughout Colombia and Brazil and is very appreciative for the opportunity to work and travel in the United States.
