The Peking Acrobats have been the featured performers on numerous television shows and celebrity-studded TV Specials including appearances on The Wayne Brady Show as well as NBC's Ring in the New Year Special, Nickelodeon's Unfabulous and Ellen's Really Big Show, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. The Peking Acrobats set the world record for the Human Chair Stack on Fox's Guinness Book Premiere where they astounded television audiences with their bravery and dexterity as they balanced six people precariously atop six chairs, 21 feet up in the air, without safety lines! The Peking Acrobats are also making the Hollywood scene on the silver screen as company members were featured in director Steven Soderbergh's hit film Ocean's 11. Qin Shaobo, an alumnus of The Peking Acrobats, appeared in that film's two blockbuster sequels, Ocean's 12, and Ocean's 13.
