Taste of Tasmania 2009: Popeyed

We try to catch all the best buskers acts, and one of our most-favorite teams is Rudi and Mark who perform amazing, funny acts of strength and acrobatics as Popeyed. The first time we saw these guys was in Hobart for the Taste of 2002. Part of their charm is they are in character as Russian acrobats who have escaped to Australia. They do it so well that we carried that story in our heads for a whole year — until we did a bit of research for the next Taste.

It doesn’t matter if you believe they are Ruskis or Aussie schoolteachers — they are always hugely entertaining.
