The unicycle is inherently comical -- the single wheel, the clumsy balancing. I thought it was an arcane hobby. I may have seen a unicyclist once or twice in my life, and only in controlled settings. Never on the street.
According to Wikipedia (take it for what it's worth!), unicycling is on the rise, thanks to extreme unicycling. Tricks and stunts you usually see on bicycles.
