Alakazam “The Human Knot”

Boston, Massachusetts

Can you even touch your toes? If you’re one of those people who struggles to cross your legs while seated, your jaw will drop in awe upon seeing Alakazam. Al is coming back to the Festival of Fools and he’s one of our original performers, having been a good friend of the Festival since its beginning eleven years ago. He’s been in knots with it ever since and hasn’t been back since 2013.

Born in Sydney, Australia, Al is literally a human knot and has performed his one-person show in 36 countries over the past 20 years. Through body contortions, truckloads of Aussie charm and daredevil feats, you’ll marvel at Al’s fast-paced and hilarious show and see why he’s considered one of the world’s best buskers. One of the world’ best here on Church Street.

See more of Al’s moves on his site.


Street Performers will be up & down the Church Street Marketplace Friday, noon-10 p.m.; Saturday, 11-10 p.m.; & Sunday, 11-6 p.m.

All busking shows are free, but we encourage you to show your support by tipping generously!
