Every single year that I've visited the Texas Renaissance Festival, I've made sure that the first performance I see is Clan Tynker. Why? Because they are funny, charming, extremely talented, appeal to all ages, and always start off my day and/or weekend with a bang.
Santiago, Serendipity, Sam, Rebekah, and Elijah each bring their own set of talents to the show. The troupe juggles, swallows swords, dances, plays instruments, balances, blows bubbles, eats fire, etc. The list goes on and on.
The highlight of their show is always their "Danger Tricks," which have always come in threes. The crowd "ooooohhhhs" as Santiago announces each "Danger Trick" and watch in awe as the troupe performs them.
For families that have tender ears, it's worth noting that Clan Tynker is extremely family friendly. I have yet to hear a harsh word come from any member of the group. There isn't even a tad bit of innuendo in their performance. For this reason, they usually have large crowds filled with people of all ages. Most of the people that I've talked with about the show have mentioned that their children pick out individual members of the group as favorites. In my family, Rebekah is tops with my daughter and my son loves to watch Elijah perform for the crowd.
For those who couple "family friendly" with "boring," you're totally wrong. This is a great show to check out. Highly recommended!
