Daredevil Bello Nock wears traditional clown makeup (with his hair spiked up to a foot-tall) but he’s no ordinary clown. He’s known as the World’s Greatest Daredevil who’s been in the Guinness Book of World Records for his 2013 high wire feat (walking across the entire length of a cruise ship at sea). Born Demetrius Nock, Bello comes from a long line of circus performers. He started performing when he was 3. And when he was 6, he played Michael in the touring version of Peter Pan with Cathy Rigby. He went on to join New York’s Big Apple Circus and then made the leap to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus as their headliner.
Keeping the family tradition alive, Bello’s gorgeous daughter Annaliese Nock has also become a Guinness World Record breaking circus performer at Circus Sarasota. See below. America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
