After studying at the London School of Mime and the Circus Space, Bernie began performing street theatre shows at Covent Garden, London. His shows already included wirewalking and he specialised in this skill after a season as a juggler with Glyndebourne Opera, where he worked with the master wirewalker Brian Andro, of Cirque Du Soleil. Since then he has appeared at festivals all over the world, with his unique combination of outrageous comedy characters, hilarious audience participation and nailbiting tricks on the highwire. TV appearances include You Bet (ITV) where he walked blindfold up a steeply inclined wire to 25ft, then backwards down the incline on the other side, all within three minutes.
