His life changes when befriends a mysterious old man by the name of Louis Bertolotto, a retired entertainer who once ran the Greatest Flea Circus of All Time.

The BUSTER CANFIELD SHOW!

Developed with the support of Smile Theatre. This nostalgic one man variety show was created with senior citizens in mind, but is delightful to the senior citizen in all of us.

 

Buster Canfield uses puppets, music and parlour magic to recreate the variety shows from the golden age of television. It's just like The Ed Sullivan Show and the Tommy Hunter Show, but all the acts are performed by the same little fella.
