For over one hundred years the Circus under the Big Top has been part of America's history. The American Crown Circus, Inc. & Circo Osorio was not around at the beginning; however they have perfected and brought back to the public the original feeling of the Circus under the Big Top.
Beginning their careers, the Osorio Brothers were an awe inspiring and energetic high wire act, performing in such renowned venues as Circus Circus in Las Vegas and Reno, Knotts Berry Farm, and Bush Gardens. These fourth generation circus performers are now the proud owners of the American Crown Circus, Inc. and Circo Osorio, bringing all the fun and excitement of the traditional circus to fans of all ages across United States, Canada and Mexico.
The original Circo Osorio was started by our Grandfather Jesus Osorio in 1927. Our father Hermino Osorio was a trapeze artist, lion trainer and the first person to create the Human Cannonball in Mexico. Our Mother was a show girl and later was our wardrobe mistress for our beautiful costumes. We have entertained audiences for over 82 years throughout U.S.A., Mexico, Central America and Canada.
Our father retired from the original family show, Circo Osorio in Mexico, to make sure we had an education in the United States. Education has always been a very important part of our family. Our older sister Isabel went to college and our younger sister Lolis had a full college scholarship. Another older sister, Dora, works for the Austin School District in Austin Texas. Against our father's wishes for us to be doctors or lawyers, we returned to our circus roots and first love.
We started with the high-wire act because the flying trapeze didn't fit in our back yard in San Antonio, Texas. When we returned to performing we were featured with the tented shows of Carson & Barnes and Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus. From there we went to parks including the Great Escape Park, New York; Busch Gardens, Florida to Knott's Berry Farm, California. While at Knott's Berry Farm we caught the eye of Circus Circus Casino Entertainment Director Mark Maguire. He gave us a contract for Circus Circus Casino Reno, Nevada for 4 years then we were transferred to the Circus Circus Casino Las Vegas, the Entertainment Capital of the World. That's when we started producing our own shows and tours. Our first tour was only 10 days in the Las Vegas Valley. Our tour has grown to over 35 weeks, traveling from Nevada to California, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Nebraska, Idaho, Minnesota, Illinois, Mississippi, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico.
Our family still produces shows in Mexico. The original Circo Osorio (one of the biggest in Mexico) and Circo De Choya are still entertaining thousands of people yearly.
SEE YOU AT THE CIRCUS!
