The Super American Circus is produced by Global Entertainment Productions. Its president and CEO Cornell “Tuffy” Nicholas is also the show’s ringmaster.
Tuffy comes from a family with extensive circus history. His father “Count Nicholas” was the lead ringmaster extraordinaire of the traveling Ringling Brothers circus. Tuffy was actually born on the Sarasota stop of the Ringling Brothers Traveling Circus. The Nicholas’s raised their three children on-the-road and Tuffy grew up amongst some of the world’s most famous performers and celebrities. Under the careful eye of the Count, he became a great performer mastering a variety of different acts and skills. He made his first appearance as an honorary ringmaster on a main-street float alongside his proud father at the ripe old age of 3.
For more than 35 years now, Nicholas has been a successful producer and promoter of circuses, concerts, festivals and sporting events around the world. As president and CEO since 2000, he has produced over 5,000 performances around the World – Moscow State Circus, Modern American Circus, International All-Star Circus are just a few of Nicholas’s productions.
In 2005 he produced Cirque Hawaii, a multi-million-dollar, state of the art, permanent theatrical spectacular, that showcased the award-winning talent of over 35 performers from around the world and thrilled Hawaiian audiences.
An incredible show like Super American Circus deserves an equally incredible venue.
