Michelangelo and Angelina Nock, a father and daughter duo from Florida, are the dangerous stunt performers of The Nerveless Nocks. Nikki Bella, Travis Pastrana, and Simon Cowell were gripped to their seats as they witnessed sway poles in the sky from the duo’s signature stunt.
Angelina Nock is 30 years old and a live female stunt performer who is among the most proficient in today’s stunt industry. In her ninth generation as a Nock, Angelina is a master of the Sway Poles, water skiing, and aerial feats.
Nerveless Nocks is led by Michelangelo Nock, who is 55 years old. He is also the company’s president and CEO.
The family story of Nerveless Nocks
The daredevils known as the Nerveless Nocks have a long and illustrious history dating back to 1840.
Globe of death, sway pole acrobatics, waterskiing, and other tricks are in their repertoire. Their name is a direct reference to Queen Elizabeth. After he performed for her, she initially referred to Michelangelo’s father as “nerveless” That’s how it’s been ever since.
Charles Nock, Dorothy Nock, Eugene Nock SR, Elizabeth Bauer Nock, and Joseph Bauer were the original Nerveless Nocks.
They made their American debut in 1954 as the star attraction of the Greatest Show on Earth for then-circus owners John and Henry Ringling North.
The Nerveless Nocks performed the Sway Pole spectacular and The Aerial Balancing Ladder for the next four years in a row.
It was in 1977 that Dave Merrifield, of Helicopter Trapeze fame, recommended The Nerveless Nocks. This group included Eugene Nocks Sr. and his wife Aurelia Canestrelli Nock, as well as their sons Eugene Nock Jr., John Nock, Michelangelo Nock, and Bello Nock, for a performance at the spectacular outdoor shows of Tommy Bartlett and Tom Diehl.
What happened at AGT
On their audition for AGT: Extreme, Angelina, and Michelangelo used their 80-foot sway poles. This group, like Cyndel Flores, stated that their act does not include any safety padding or harness. They’re hoping that their special link would help them stand out in the competition because they’re a father-daughter act. Because it was Angelina’s first time on the pole after breaking her leg, the Nocks wanted to make this a memorable performance.
Before they started their act, Angelina and her father ascended 80 feet up the poles. They began swaying the poles back and forth after both were on top of them. The duo began doing upside-down stunts when the adrenaline rush of swaying wore off, including one in which they swung the poles and switched places. Both the father’s and daughter’s deaths were dropped 80 feet at the end of the act.
A standing ovation was given to this performance by the judges. They received three “yeses” right away, which qualified them to move on to the next round. “That’s what AGT extreme is all about,” Nikki said. “This is one of the scariest act we’ve seen. That was off the chart,” Simon remarked.
