Guy Laliberte Space Tourist Price, Guy Laliberté, OC, CQ (born September 2, 1959) is a Canadian entrepreneur, philanthropist, poker player, space tourist and the current CEO of Cirque du Soleil. With an estimated net worth of US$2.5 billion (as of March 2011), Laliberte was ranked by Forbes as the 11th wealthiest Canadian and 459th in the world.
Starting out busking as an accordion player, stiltwalker and fire-eater, in 1984 Laliberté founded Cirque du Soleil, a Canadian circus company whose shows have since been seen by more than 90 million people worldwide. In 2006, Laliberté was named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
Laliberté was born in 1959 in Baie-Saint-Paul, a small village in lower Quebec, Canada. His interest in show business began at a relatively young age. His parents took him to watch the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, an experience which led Laliberté to read the biography of P. T. Barnum. While in school, Guy produced several performing arts events. After school, he entered the world of street performance, playing the harmonica and accordion on the streets of Quebec. Laliberté joined a performing troupe that included fire-breathers, jugglers, and acrobats who hitched around the country from show to show. He later returned to Quebec, where he attempted to keep a steady full-time job at a hydroelectric dam. However, soon after his employment began, the company’s employees went on strike. Laliberté took the opportunity to return to his life as a street performer.
