...the show was fantastic, simply brilliant! I just wanted to write and thank you for arranging the excellent Juan Carlos to perform at our Well Dressing festival! The show was simply fantastic - plenty of visual action and excitement for young and old, with a thread of comedy all the way through - just brilliant. I'm not sure how you can give such a physical performance and be as funny as that all at the same time. Here's to next year, let's hope you're back to entertain the residents of Aston 'Martin' again soon! Ian Dunn , Aston-on-Trent.
...may have stolen the show from the best man!! "Having seen Juan Carlos (Angus) at Bathing Beauties we asked if he did weddings to which he replied he did. How brilliant! He brought the house down.

...the performance was excellent, in fact it was amazing... "My wife and I had Angus perform at our wedding and the performance was excellent in fact it was amazing.

He is a fantastic chap and we and all our guest would highly recommend him; in fact everyone is still talking about it." Mr & Mrs Carl Wapplington, Leek .
...brought a unique element of spectacle... "We thought Angus brought a unique element of spectacle to our Halloween party.

The children were in awe, the parents were amazed and the grandparents were slightly afraid! His character had everyone in stitches! I would absolutely recommend Angus to anyone wanting an original, fun and exciting show for any party old or young. He has also done a show at my son's christening which was greeted with as much awe and enthusiasm as the 60th. Book him now!" Fiona Case, Kingston-Upon-Thames.

The use of fire, unicycle and other eclectic props were used expertly and creatively engaging all in a laugh out loud spectacle." Stephen Munn, Co-Producer Derby Festé
...he rose to the challenge admirably and kept the crowds happy throughout the evening "Angus was brilliant. On the night the pressure was ramped up as he became the main focus for hundreds of people due to a technical issue with the main event. This wasn’t part of the brief but he rose to the challenge admirably and kept the crowds happy throughout the evening. His unique brand of ‘intercontinental’ danger and comedy was just the ticket!. Highly recommended. Thanks." Keith Jeffrey, QUAD, Derby.

...hisshow was a brilliant and fitting addition to this really special event "This year we added the excitement of a fire juggler to the annual Bolsover Lantern Parade. Angus Mcleod (Chango Fuego) kept the the crowd entertained before the parade started in the grounds of Bolsover Castle with his energetic display and plenty of audience interaction. His show was a brilliant and fitting addition to this really special event and we hope Angus will be part of the Lantern Parade in subsequent years.' Aly Stoneman, Project Co-ordinator, Junction Arts
...Children and adults were absolutely entranced by the amazing ‘street theatre’ style... "Inviting the amazing Juan Carlos to our Nursery School Spring Fayre turned out to be a very smart move! Children and adults were absolutely entranced by the amazing ‘street theatre’ style show which lit up our modest school grounds for around twenty minutes.Juan’s alter ego Angus, made the organisation look effortless and from my point of view as head teacher, took control of the event marvellously. Angus’s skills in communicating with a crowd literally ranging in age from 0-80 were as impressive as his circus and fire eating talents. I very much hope that he will become a regular,( if rather unconventional! ) visitor to our school on many future occasions. A very big thank you Juan Carlos from everyone at Central Community Nursery School !" Clare Cossor, Headteacher, Central nursery , Derby.
...Juan Carlos Bourbon de Zumarraga de las Casas de Almodovar was amazing, "Juan Carlos Bourbon de Zumarraga de las Casas de Almodovar was amazing, not only with his firing eating skills but in managing, a group of 25, very enthusiastic 6 and 7 year olds. He did amazingly well during an hour session on circus skills. Many of the children had never done anything like this before and he worked at their individual levels so they all got the most out of the party too. I would suggest him for any children’s party especially as I think the parents felt they had missed out at the end of the night when they saw the with the fire eating." Emma Ruff, Burton upon Trent.
..he didn't stop talking about it for a month. Absolutely fabulous!! "Angus did a fire show for my 11 year old boys' birthday... I swear he didn't stop talking about it for a month. The kids just loved it as they all felt involved and totally excited. To be honest, I was a little nervous to begin with but immediately could tell Angus knew what he was doing so that by the end, he had a group of pretty feisty young fellas in the palm of his hand. Absolutely fabulous!!" Mandy Sims, Sheffield.
...the finalé with the fire eating show was the perfect end to the party... "Having worked with Angus professionally it was great to be able to utilise his unique skills for my son's 4th Birthday Party and have Juan provide the entertainment. My son was amazed and loved every minute and his friends couldn't wait to get stuck in and try all the acts. The finalé with the fire eating show was the perfect end to the party on a cold November evening and everyone still refers to Kiran's mummy as the silly super hero with the silly man who ate fire (so parents be warned you will be participating!). If you want a party with a difference and a memorable one, then Angus / Juan is your man!" Clare Talati, Mansfield.
...our daughter and her friends reckon 'it was the best party ever'! "We hired Angus for our 11 year old daughter’s party. With his skilful and floor filling mixes as DJ to fire eater and knife juggler not only did the kids have the most fantastic time but so did we! Never has a party gone so smoothly and been so enjoyable for us as adults and our daughter and her friends reckon 'it was the best party ever'! Thanks for helping to create such an experience to remember for us all." Rachel Hinton, Nottingham.
... Best kids party Ever!... Liz Dobson, Derby.
SCHOOLS & WORKSHOPS
...I highly recommend Angus for his flexibility, generosity of spirit and his understanding.. "Angus worked brilliantly with our year 3 children, teaching them a variety of circus skills. He was kind, caring, patient and really understood how to get the best out of the groups he worked with. The kids were so eager each week to see him and they worked enthusiastically and with confidence. I was so pleased to see some children who were perhaps not as academic, really achieving and taking part with such pride in our end of term concert. As a teacher working in a busy school, I highly recommend Angus for his flexibility, generosity of spirit and his understanding of how to deal with a group of over-excitable children and various pointy objects! No injuries all term!" K. Brennan, Pear Tree Junior School, Derby.
...We cannot recommend Angus highly enough and will definitely be booking him again... "We booked Angus for a circus skills workshop with our two groups of drama students aged 10-15. Angus provided a vibrant and exciting workshop which enabled all students learn a variety of skills over a three-hour period. This workshop was in preparation for our upcoming production which involves circus characters and performances and it really helped to inspire the students and get them excited for the work they are about to do. Angus was incredibly professional and obliging and eager to tailor his workshop to suit our needs. He even very kindly obliged us by putting on a fire juggling display for students and their parents at the end of the morning. We cannot recommend Angus highly enough and will definitely be booking him again in the not so distant future." Mary Benzies, Principal Tolethorpe Youth Drama, Stamford Lincolnshire.
