The Show Salon was founded out of a love of making theatre
The Show Salon's founder, Julian Bell has been passionately involved as a performer and creator of theatre, comedy and circus for the last 14 years. Starting as a humble juggler that nobody really watched, he has constantly evolved and has gone on to perform in over 20 countries.
Best known as the creator of Ernest the Magnifico - Australia’s Favourite Daredevil, Julian has a keenly developed understanding of character development and character comedy as well as an ability to create well structured, dynamic routines.
Trained in clown, circus and physical theatre, Julian has appeared on the streets, in festivals, in theatres and on radio and television. He has run off to join the circus, performed with Opera Australia in the Sydney Opera House and has even been seen performing on the side of a skyscraper with Legs on the Wall.
Since 2012 Julian has lived in Freiburg, Germany where he recently founded an independent theatre group Firlefanz Theater.
The Show Salon is the natural extension of Julian's passion for working creatively - both on his own theatre shows and in helping others with the creative development of their shows.
