You see him all over town usually fire eating, stilt walking, doing magic or juggling. Paul Antonio has been entertaining since he was nine years old. The world of performing can be fun and dangerous. Paul says "I have fallen off stilts before and set fire to my face and burned my hand."

Returning from a recent tour Paul's motor home stalled out. He climbed underneath to see if he could jump it and it started up, began rolling and dragged him underneath. He was able to roll out, and he got away with a broken leg. It could have ended much worse. According to Paul "I could have died under there."

The day after the accident, Paul; was back to work entertaining with a broken leg. He says that the "show must go on."  And in his words "it's what I do, what I love"
