About Bumbulum

Bumbulum The Fool is an artist, the pavement is his canvas and he paints with the people’s smiles. He has travelled the world having great fun playing for the public and sharing his pleasure with them; he’s loved it and so have they! His only desire is to keep on doing it, for you and your audiences; his show is full of fun and dangerous looking stunts, (but they’re not really dangerous, because he’s a professional,

and if they were really dangerous that would be irresponsible, and not fun).
Bumbulum (Shammy Amram) began performing in 1987 on Covent Garden’s famed West Piazza & by 1991 was regularly appearing on the London alternative scene & later the National Stand-up Comedy circuit, headlining top London comedy clubs such as Jonglers & The Comedy Store.

Bumbulum came 2nd Place in the Cardiff International Street Entertainers Festival & was winner of the Comedy Category & 3rd Place over all of The Time Out London International Street Entertainers Festival & was a Polo Mint Comedy Award Nominee. He trained with renowned clown teacher Philippe Gaulier & with founding members of Theatre De Complicite’s Simon

McBurney & Marcello Magni. Bumbulum has travelled the world demonstrating his own hilarious & exciting brand of controlled mayhem including much of Europe, the USA, Far East & the Caribbean. He has played in theatres, including the Theatre Royal & the National Theatre, at corporate events, festivals, clubs, amusement parks, resorts…you name it. Bumbulum has also made television

appearances, & even been on the radio (Yes, Juggling on the radio!). He was a featured artist on Paul McCartney’s video “Hope of Deliverance”.

Shamgar Amram


Bumbulum (Shamgar Amram) also works as an actor. In 2010 he was cast in the leading role of the eponymous character in the feature film “Bibliotheque Pascal” by the award winning Hungarian Director Szabolcs Hajdu. “I was in London, walking around Covent Garden and I came upon this group of 300 people watching this guy with a unicycle. Only the last 10 minutes involved the unicycle, the other 30 minutes was him just improvising & doing stand-up. I invited him to Budapest for a casting. We only needed half an hour, he was so convincing.” Szabolcs Hajdu The film was the Hungarian contender for the Best Foreign Language Oscar 2011. The film won a number of awards in Budapest, including the Golden Reel main prize, Best Cinematography & the Gene Moskowitz Prize. It has since gone on to appear in over 33 International Film Festivals, winning Cineuropa Prize & CICAE Award.
