Ammed Tuniziani

Ammed is the featured flyer and leader of the Flying Tunizianis troupe. He hails from a third-generation circus family in Venezuela and is the youngest of 5 brothers who started the Flying Tunizianis.

Since 2014 Ammed has continued the flying trapeze act with his wife Estefani Evans who is also a featured flyer in the act. They have two children Davi and Alysha, 5 and 3 years old.

Ammed has performed in a wide array of shows prior to the Big Apple Circus including those at Circus Circus Casino, Circus Vargas, Cirque Du Soleil, and for the last 4 years, Ringling Bros. Ammed has been flying for 17 years and has perfected some of the most difficult tricks on the flying trapeze including the double twisting double somersault, triple tuck and triple pike.  In 2017, he began performing the seldom attempted quadruple somersault, which will be the main feature of this year’s act at the Big Apple Circus. Ammed lives in Las Vegas, and can’t wait to start the new season with BAC!
