TAYLOR FUNKHOUSER certified reviewer June 24, 2014
If someone told me I was gonna see a 50 minute show with two clowns and no dialogue and I was gonna enjoy it, I would've told them they were crazy! I not only enoyed this show, I LOVED IT!!! I'm sad it was their last show for Fringe. They have skillfully brought an old craft to a present audience that gave me a whole new appreciation for clowning, mime, and physical comedy. I've seen so many bad attempts of physical comedy, I can't remember the last time I've seen it well done. Beau and Aero changed all of that! They will be in the San Diego Fringe Festival. Im thinking of making the trip to see them again. It's really that good.... full review

We went to see Beau and Aero the other night at the Dorie Theatre. The two actor/ clowns Amica Hunter and David Cantor were so funny. Amica is so talented and expressive. The whole show was delightful and wonderful. On one part they were dancing with a balloon in between them. Also they got the audience involved and one of the people they called up to the stage was my daughter's boyfriend. This show was totally sweet. These two aviators with ridiculous antics and acrobatic stunts made me laugh and smile even though they never spoke any words. ... full review

Such a great show! So much fun. Who would of knew that so much could be done with balloons! Beau and Aero were one of my highlights at this years fringe and was a show that had everyone talking. A young team with incredible chemistry and just a natural talent to make people smile. The using of audience members was so funny and had me very nervous at one point as I found myself being stroked and played with by one of the dynamic duo. Such good fun and such a shame their show has ended, as so much talk has been 'I really wanted to see that show, I heard it was great" You heard right. A first class clown comedy!!!!... full review

A simple idea executed very well. This is a great show for a family. They are present with the audience and their actions inspired laughs, cheers, jeers, and then some laughs again! This show deserves sold out shows! Again it would be great for the family! Stop what you're doing and buy a ticket now!... full review

Beau & Aero is utterly charming. This clown duo is a joy to watch. Not specifically a "children's show" but definitely kid friendly. ... full review

Amica Hunter and David Cantor make for a must-see theatrical and circus clowning duo. Having studied clowning, it is refreshing to see traditional clowning techniques mixed with mime, acrobatics, and pure entertainment – not to mention the most inventive uses of balloons I’ve ever seen. The theme of aviation is wonderfully explored as Beau (Cantor) tosses the nimble Aero (Hunter) around. Balloons are used throughout – popping, flying, turning into puppets, and the finale with the “dance of the balloon” (that’s what I’m calling it) is hysterical and beautiful. If we weren’t laughing we were stunned with awe. There is still some sharpening and refining that could be done with this piece. I’d also love to see (or hear) better use of sound... full review

Do you want to know the secret of flight? Here: If you want to fly, you don’t need to close your eyes, madly flap your arms, and wish really hard only to inevitably be disappointed that your feet remained firmly grounded. Instead, go see Beau & Aero, a flight of fancy whose inspired silliness will lift you up with laughter.... full review

Best show I saw at the Fringe this year! Talented professionals doing charming, moving, very funny work and making difficult work seem effortless. Truly fantastic.... full review
REBECCA RYLAND certified reviewer June 21, 2014
Loved it! A great example of a show that is really delightful but up until last night, we heard, had small audiences. Thankfully it was full house last night and everyone, including myself, laughed and giggled throughout. Simplicity mixed with talent...and the most creative use of balloons I've ever seen!... full review
CHAIRMAN BARNES certified reviewer June 21, 2014
Clowning is hard! Silent clowning is even harder. But, Beau and Aero pull off their one-hour show with a breezy easiness that belies the difficulties of such a feat. What's even more amazing is that much of show is built around a simple, common party accessory. Their Punch and Judy antics, masterful acrobatic skills and delightful audience rapport make this a show well worth your time!... full review
