ENTERTAINMENT (Free with Big Island Fair admission)

Circus Show

Ringmaster Giovanni Anastasini, who has been the ringmaster of the circus shows at the 50th State Fair for the past several years and who brought an exciting roller-skating act to last year's Big Island Fair, was scheduled to be ringmaster at this year's Big Island Fair, but an unexpected change in his schedule with the Big Apple Circus prevents him from coming to Kona.

Giovanni's brother, Luciano, will be the ringmaster at this year's Big Island Fair. He will also provide comedy with audience participation. The bothers are eighth generation members of the Anastasini family, an Italian circus family whose early records in show business date as far back as 1877 and who settled in the U. S. in the 1960s. Luciano has performed at nearly every major circus in the U.S. including Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey and the Big Apple Circus.

Originally from Havana, Cuba, Ricardo Sosa will perform his remarkable hand-balancing and contortion act that he mastered as a student at the Yuri Mandich Circus School, the Cuban national Russian-style state circus school. Ricardo is now a U.S. citizen who has worked extensively in nightclubs, casinos, and circuses, including Circus Circus and the Bellagio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas; Teatro ZinZanni in Seattle and San Francisco; Universoul Circus; and Circus Sarasota. He has also embarked on an international career, appearing with Circo Moira Orfei in Italy and numerous variety shows in Germany.

From Las Vegas, Mr. & Mrs. G (aka Ottavio Gesmundo and Naomi Brenkman) will perform their famed crossbow stunts for an exciting, heart-stopping act. Their performing credits include The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, The Britney Spears Circus (opening video segment), Spider-Man Live at Radio City Music Hall, and Elton John & Tim Rice's Aida in The Netherlands. Naomi, who was born in Holland, and Ottavio, who is a sixth generation circus performer, met and fell in love in Amsterdam while performing together in Aida.

From Sarasota, are Miles Hayes and George Landkas-Coronas, both eighth generation circus performers. They will perform the Icarian Risley act, one of the oldest and most difficult circus disciplines around. Risley is normally performed with brothers or with a father and son, because the act requires so much strength and trust between the partners. Miles and George are the first Risley performers to have ever switched partners in their career.

The Circus Show will be presented at 9 p.m. on Thursday; 9 p.m. on Friday; 4 p.m., 7 p.m., and 9:30 p.m. on Saturday; and 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Sunday.

Thursday & Friday 9:00 p.m.
Saturday 4:00, 7:00 & 9:30 p.m.
Sunday 4 p.m. & 7 p.m.

Comedy Canines

Originally from New Jersey, Dawn Goehring has been an animal lover from the beginning. Growing up, she worked at pet stores and stables and volunteered at the zoo. After graduating from the Moorpark College Exotic Animal Training and Management Program, Dawn worked at Six Flags California training animals and educating the public about them. Her Comedy Canines have appeared on David Letterman and Animal Planet and have been featured in national publications such as National Geographic Kids. Dawn and her family, including her dogs, which have all been rescued from animal shelters and rescue groups, now live on the Big Island of Hawaii (Puna area) where they continue to educate and entertain in their own unique style.

The Comedy Canines Show starring Dawn and six of her dogs (Kona, Dunkin, Hoppy, Iki, Elvis, and Scooter) will perform September 6 and 7 at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. both days.
