UniverSoul Circus Is About To Put A Ring On It! Plus: Calling All Bloggers In LA, NY, CHI, and PHI For FREE Circus Tickets

Yup, tomorrow is the big day: We're taking the girls to see the UniverSoul Circus!

I’m totally stoked because, though I’ve heard some incredible things about the show, I’ve never been before, and neither have my girls. To initiate us, the good folks of UniverSoul Circus are hooking up my entire family with tickets and exclusive backstage access as part of its UniverSoul Circus Blogger Experience—a family night out to help the circus celebrate its 15th anniversary.

I’m told there’ll be 10 new acts from around the globe: A three-man comedy trapeze troupe, 14 male acrobats performing daredevil tricks between two vertical poles, kid contortionists, acrobats on horseback, gospel miming, clowns, and lots of audience interaction—all set to R&B, Hip-Hop, Gospel, and Funk music, in keeping with the Newsweek proclamation that this show is “the only place you can watch… a bungee-jumping troupe sailing through the air to the hip-hop grooves of Outkast.”

Clowns, acrobats, tigers and elephants, cotton candy, my favorite music, and my favorite girls and guys—I can’t think of a better way to spend a Friday night with my family. That’s what’s up!

Atlanta, UniverSoul Circus’s hometown, is the first stop in its 27-market “Jabulani: Joy, Laughter, Happiness” tour, which will include blogger nights in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia.

If you’re a blogger in any one of these cities and you want to check out the UniverSoul Circus Blogger Experience, leave a comment below, and I’ll reach out to my people at USC to see if I can get you the hook-up. Free tickets are limited, so it’ll be first come-first served kids—just sayin’.

I can’t wait to tell you all about our big night out under the UniverSoul Circus Big Top!
