Mat Velvet and Charlie Show
Shockingly funny and astoundingly skilful, Mat Velvet, star and wheel god, selflessly shares his talent with you.
Monsieur Velvet sports a superb moustache, oozes charisma, and has a little tag along... for the sake of ease lets call him Charlie. Mat, smooth as Velvet, tolerates a small, eager, and annoying wannabe with a huge secret.
This original blend offers an astounding display of acrobatic prowess wrapped in a hilarious crinkly wrapper with a stunning twist at the end.
Mat Velvet is Martin Varallo and Dominique Major is Charlie and herself...
Dominique is one of the few female German Wheel artists in the world. Martin isn't. Dominique is beautiful and Martin... well you know.
