One minute they're in Barcelona, London or Italy - the next they're performing in King's Lynn.
The town's summer of Covent Garden street performances continued on Saturday in Baxter's Plain in the Vancouver Quarter.
Kiki Vita and Maple Staplegun, also known as Amelia Cadwallader, entertained a crowd of onlookers, who were soaking up the sun.
Mr Vita is a self-proclaimed 'professional stupid' while Maple Staplegun is a hula-hoop performer.
She said: 'We're based in Barcelona. We're going on from here to Trafalgar Square in London, and next week it's Italy and Germany.

Elizabeth Nockolds, West Norfolk Council's cabinet member for culture, heritage and health, said: 'We brought the Covent Garden street performers back as they proved so popular last year. We invite everyone to come along to the Vancouver Quarter, see these amazing free acts and explore our historic and beautiful town centre.'
Abbie Panks, Vancouver Quarter manager, added: 'These street performers are such a fun, unusual, addition to the summer programme of events. 'We're pleased we could work with the borough council to bring them back again this year. We know the programme of events last year increased the number of visitors to the town centre, which benefits everyone, and we're sure this year's will do the same.'
