Okay, I'm hesitating a lot if I should take the first post, but I'll do it.

First of all, I would like to know more about who we see here. His name is Phil Os or is this (again) some french grammar play?
And Shan, is this you or did you find this on youtube. Clearly it is promotional material, containing a full routine with some cuts.
Watching this video, at one point I was like; "Wait, is this a lefthanded version of Tony?" Is this that copy-tony-guy guys?
I have to also add there was so very kewl stuff with 1D genocides, that was smooth. Overall it all is fairly tricky obviously, most parts.

The only remaining thing I guess me saying I did not really enjoy that, but I can calm everyone down again*, because that is just me.

*except if there is more like me who also think this is whack, then we'll fight about it!

Well I enjoyed that, and just because someone comes onto stage arrogantly with a sleeveless T shirt* it doesn't necessarily mean they want to be Tony F. Some moves fly close to the 'cheeky bastard, that's someones signature move' territory  but hey ho.

I liked the structure/concept of the performance, the pacing change, the interaction, the nerves to do that character. I'd book him, looks like he went down well.

*usually means they went to a Euro circus school :P

I saw this on youtube, pretty great performance. Though it does copy Tony a little.

Perhaps not the most fresh, but great anyway. I could see some nice stilish moves.

Just noticed this thread, so thought I'd better throw in a few facts on top of all the speculation.

First of all, no he ain't French, his real name is Phil Behrens, and he is German.  He's based in Kassel, and works in many of the German variete theatres.  If you're reading this, you're on the internet, so why not pop along to www.phil-os.com and you can learn a bit more...

I jammed a bit with Phil this winter as we were both working for Variete Etcetera (him in Kiel, me in Bochum) and he's really rather good, and a nice chap too.

Which brings me to folks criticising a video of a live performance, which they've never seen, using the same criteria as they use for a diabolo-centric freestyle video:

1) it's live, for real people (even convention shows aren't really real shows, folks!)

2) Of the hundreds of pro jugglers I know, I cannot think of any who do their most difficult stuff on stage.

3)  Give me a camcorder and an afternoon, and I can convince you that I'm potentially a pro golfer :)

Much love, go see Phil if you get the chance, go see anything for real if you get the chance,

All the best

Donald

so true. That's why some friends still believe I'm good!

Mr. Grant, thank you really for the comment. It's a matter of experience and age, to finally understand that a real performer doesn't have to please the freaks but the real audience, which has an utter different criteria of what is cool (or boring), and therefore, what is worth a big applause.

Maybe it's just me, but i find it much harder to perform in conventions than for real people. Shows to normal people goes every time very well, which isnt the case when I try to do something in conventions/open stage or something like that..

Maybe I try to do harder stuff when there is other diabolists around, dont know..
