Choose a job you love and never work a day in your life – that’s juggler James BuSTAR to a tee.
Often billed as Australia’s funniest juggler, Bustar entertains thousands each week as a headliner on the world’s top cruise lines and the corporate performance circuit.
“The favourite part of my job is doing something that I enjoy and the smiles and laughs that I put on peoples faces, it’s priceless” he said.
BuSTAR caught the attention of Australia’s Got Talent fans in 2009, making it all the way to the semi-finals. His unique style of contorted juggling made him one of the first juggling circus artists to be accepted onto the TV show.
With 11 years experience in the industry, BuSTAR has come a long way from a bullied teen to Australia’s newest comedy sensation to entertaining audiences worldwide.
As a child, BuSTAR was always taught to follow his dreams and he made his dream of running away with the circus a reality.
“My inspiration began with watching my local circus every weekend in the UK” he said.
“When I moved to Australia at 11-years-old I taught myself to juggle from the internet, and haven’t looked back.”
BuSTAR studied drama and worked as extras in movies, however his passion has always been circus.
His journey includes being part of the Flying Fruit Fly Circus in Albury, street performer in Sydney, working at a Japan theme park, stage shows with Ringling Brothers Clowns and Flying Trapeze instructor in Sydney.
He has also worked for Club Med resorts teaching and performing juggling and flying trapeze which has led to working on cruise ships and working at festivals overseas.
BuSTAR said one of his greatest achievements to date was being the youngest headliner act to be employed and to perform on cruise lines internationally.
