Adrian: Street comedian on Piazza Navona


Aside from the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Spanish steps and all the other sights that guide books will tell you about, Rome has several must-see street performers.
This is street comedian Adrian, who frequently performs at Piazza Navona. His show always draws a huge crowd. He uses his immediate surroundings as his stage props. For instance, when a pigeon landed close to him he quickly procured a remote control and started miming that he was controlling the bird.
He also uses people as props, and one of his subjects yesterday was my little brother Mattias. Adrian instructed Mattias to play the bull in a match of bullfighting.
If you’re in Rome and you happen to see Adrian, you should really stop and watch this world class entertainer. You won’t regret it.
