About
Charles Clark, also known as Rufus the Dufus, started practicing circus arts at the age of 15 with the unicycle one bored summer day. A year later learned to juggle and started going to magic classes to learn magic and showmanship. At the age of 17 nervously worked a small town renaissance festival, where one day he balanced a blind mans cane on his chin as his wife described what was happening. From that point on he's traveled and performed all over the state of Michigan and beyond, becoming a award winning juggler and performer. Always trying to because more skillful in the tricks he's performing and more entertaining and engaging to audiences everywhere.

His show has come along was since he started, becoming a gut wrenching comedy circus variety show, performing awesome circus skills, cracking jokes, and interacting with audience members. Some silly tricks and routines to make you laugh, some serious tricks with just a hint of danger to have you on the edge of your seat.

Rufus's skills list includes but is not limited to:
Juggling
With balls, clubs, rings, knifes, torches, and anything else to make you have a good time

Contact juggling and Object manipulation
Making ordinary objects into something extraordinary

Unicycling
On a normal unicycle, a 6 foot tall unicycle, or even one without a seat! with enough control to be in any crowd of people with no worry.

Magic
To amaze, dazzle, and sometimes just confuse every one, including himself.

An inspiring acrobat
So very energetic and well rounded use of his body, so don't be surprised if a flip or two gets snuck in there.

Balancing acts
Anything from balancing a stick or chair on his face, balancing on a board on a rolling tube, or a standing at the top of an 8 foot ladder with no supports.

Combination tricks
Many of these skills will be performed on there own, but some also together, juggling on a 6 foot unicycle, balancing a cane while solving a puzzle cube, the possibility's are endless.

Comedy around every turn, making people laugh and have a good time is most important than impressing people to Rufus, so be ready to laugh.

and so much more!


So Rufus the Dufus is going to be a perfect addition to any event that you need to spice up and have a little extra entertainment at, all performed with family's in mind, entertaining the smallest of children, to the oldest of adults.

Rufus the Dufus was fabulous!! The children were engaged and thoroughly enjoyed it. Rufus modified the performance according to the larger crowds and went with the flow. He was on time and pretty self sufficient. I would highly recommend him. He is a highly skilled performer who loves his work.

Rufus gave a fun, fantastical show here for our annual 4th of July picnic (130 guests). He is a wonderful performer and the kids, young and older, loved him and had a blast. Altho, the kids were so excited and very boisterous at times, he handled them well and we appreciated his great sense of humor. Many of our guests thanked us and told us they really loved the show. Rufus aka Chuck is a very personable young man and we wish him much success and many years of entertaining! If you want to have a crazy, fun time at your event..book Rufus the Dufus!

He was a lot of fun and very talented. Great for children & adults, pretty funny. Interaction with the audience, a few children got to participate in the acts. The best part was the end when he got on the unicycle. Highly recommended!

Rufus the Dufus did a great job. Unfortunately the venue had a low ceiling which made it difficult for him to do some of his juggling. He was SO great though and made the best of the situation.
