His beginning as a street performer in Europe 1982-1987

In 1982, at the end of his painting studies, Eric Boo discovered mime and quickly began working on the Ramblas in Barcelona as a street artist. In the summer that follows the end of his Fine Arts studies, he travels throughout Europe performing on the streets of various European cities. During 5 years Eric Boo developed his character and his skills on the street interacting with the public and learning from other comedians that he met on his way as Johnny Melville whom he saw acting in a theater in Barcelona and that greatly influenced him to develop his number of the car or Peter Shub with whom he shares the summers of 1984 and 1985 acting on the streets of Zurich and other comedians who crossed his path. From this period Eric Boo developed a freshness and spontaneity in his performances and a large dose of improvisation that will be one of the hallmarks of his character.
