Since their founding in 1986, The Peking Acrobats have been featured on numerous television shows and celebrity-studded TV specials. These include Nickelodeon’s “Unfabulous,” “Ellen’s Really Big Show”(hosted by Ellen DeGeneres), “The Wayne Brady Show,” “ABC’s Wide World of Sports” and more. They set the world record for the Human Chair Stack on FOX Network’s “Guinness Book Primetime” television show in 1999: they balanced six people precariously atop six chairs 21 feet up in the air without safety lines. They also were featured in the film “Ocean’s 11.”
