Macaroni Kid

"Bello returns with his show featuring featuring comedy and daredevil acts that will keep you laughing while on the edge of your seat...This show combines humor and thrills in a way that makes it entertaining to everyone...The act of the evening was when Bello climbed up a 44-foot sway pole above the audience. As Bello teetered back and forth, I reached over to grab my son's hand, and we looked at each other with our mouths open in disbelief...Truly a show not-to-miss." Full Review

Theatermania

for a previous production "There's probably no show in New York right now that parents and kids will have more fun at than the hysterical and thrill-inducing 'Bello Mania'...It gets your blood pumping with daring acrobatics, high-wire feats, eye-popping lasso tricks, and Bello's comedic, Chaplinesque antics packed into a breathtakingly fun and exciting 90 minutes...'Bello Mania' is solid family entertainment, the best of its kind."

Motherhood Later

for a previous production "A fantastic live show...High-flying, hysterically funny, circus-acrobatics...All throughout the show, Bello connects with the audience through verbal and non-verbal cues, and by recruiting audience members to come on stage and assist him...All the routines are steeped in clown comedy. There’s loads of bumbling to go around. All the more to laugh and cheer at." Full Review

The Mama Maven

for a previous production "A self-proclaimed comic daredevil, Bello Nock is likable and charismatic and yes, his hair is real...Aside from the amusing daredevil stunts, the show includes background pictures of Bello's life and tells a little bit about his and his family's background...'Bello Mania' is all about being plain silly and goofy. My kids were watching him with wide eyes and little smiles on their faces and we all had a great time at the show." Full Review

The Culture Mom

for a previous production "It’s easy to keep watching him for two solid hours as he goes from one antic to another. From walking on a high wire while balancing a high wire to tumbling high in the air on a trampoline, he comes across like a real daredevil who doesn’t quite realize his true talent. Bello is joined by a terrific team of performers including his daughter, Annaliese, who is following in his footsteps to become a circus performer." Full Review

Be Your Best Mom

for a previous production "Once again The New Victory Theater delivers a fun filled show for the entire family!..The show was spectacular. Right from the get go, Bello amazes the audience with his stunts. These stunts are so good that half the time you have no idea whether something unfortunate is truly happening to Bello or if it’s a highly choreographed routine. It’s his sheer artistry that lets us believe he’s making it up and he goes along." Full Review

Indie Theater Now

for a previous production "The guy is a master, pulling off acrobatic feats with ease, and performing physical comedy with the precision of Chaplin and the cheeriness of Martin Short...it's this effortless, engaging personality that has set him so far apart...'Bello Mania' does lag in the second act, spending too much time on Bello's personal biography and audience participation...It's hard to imagine anyone, young or old, not having a wonderful time at 'Bello Mania.'"
