Zorbing is an activity in which the participant rolls around inside a giant orb made of transparent plastic. Zorbing can be done on a small hill, level surface, or even on the water! Zorbing was actually inspired by hamster balls and invented in the 1970s. But it only started trending in the early 2000s in New Zealand, where it was re-branded as the ‘Zorb’.
Our “bouncy” duo tried it out at Montreal Bubble Ball!
It really does look like a hamster wheel...
Darcy really had to hustle to stay out of the way!
‘Slapstick’ is a type of physical comedy characterized by absurd situations, and outrageous make-believe physical activity. This humour style was made famous in the early 1920s and 30s by American comedians and actors, like Charlie Chaplin and The Three Stooges. Did you know that the term ‘slapstick’ originates from 16th century Italy? A slap stick was a paddle-like object used in commedia dell’arte, an early form of professional theatre popular in Europe. The slap stick was composed of two pieces of wood that slapped together to make the sound of a real live ‘smack’. Actors could hit each other with it repeatedly for comedic effect without feeling any pain.
Destiny and Varun learned from the best – Maxime Larose from the Dr Clown Foundation!
Once you walk through the magic comedy door, you are automatically funny.
"So if I hold my hand really straight you won't hit me in the face?"
The laughs DID. NOT. STOP.
There is always a lot of fun to be had behind the scenes on a TV show… here are just a couple of those moments from this episode – enjoy! 🙂
Making a TV show is hard work.
See what Darcy has to endure?
To say nothing of Varun!!! :)
This is what those in the biz call "Hurry up and wait."
We trust you Max!
Introduce your friends to the show !

Outgoing, with an unlimited supply of energy, Destiny is into sports like broomball and hockey, as well as the arts. She’s a painter, plays a little piano, and loves to watch comedy films. Destiny loves traveling, has been to Sweden and Hawaii, and would love to get to Fiji one day. Her ultimate goal is to go into an early childhood education program for university. Destiny lives in a pretty athletic and healthy household and doesn’t get to eat much junk food at home, so when she has the chance, her favourite treats are gushers, chocolate, sugary cereals, and of course – pizza!
