Article Photos: AP Photos: Circus star comes knocking in NYC 10/10

This March 23, 2013 photo shows performer Bello Nock perched atop a sway pole trying to retrieve an balloon, as he performs during his "Bello Mania" show, at the New Victory Theater in New York. Nock, a seventh-generation circus performer, is never offstage during the 90-minute performance, which combines slapstick clowning with death-defying aerial stunts. He performs through March 31 at the New Victory before moving on to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls and then a 10-week stint at the Beau Rivage Casino in Biloxi, Miss.  (AP Photo/Richard Drew)
