GIGMASTERS AWARD WINNER. Hilarious COMEDY, cool MIME illusions, amazing MAGIC tricks, BALLOONS (comedy and sculptures). 20 years experience. Thousands of shows performed to millions of smiling people worldwide, in Schools, Museums, Hospitals, Fairs, Holiday Parties etc.
The Hoopoe Show- 30-60 mins. The show kids want to see year after year, but all ages love it.
Hilarious comedy, amazing magic tricks, cool mime illusions and balloon fun. An original vaudeville show that is funny, imaginative and full of surprises. The unexpected is to be expected when audience volunteers are invited to join Hoopoe on stage to assist with illusions. Young and old unite through laughter as they follow the antics of this unique performer to their humorous ends.
Hoopoe's look is without the big make-up and noise that some kids are shy of. He maintains their attention for the entire length of the show because his material is well crafted and tried and tested in thousands of shows worldwide.
"An outstanding artist who performs his craft flawlessly and dazzles the audience with his witty, yet silent, movements. By far one of the best and most personable entertainers I've had the pleasure to work with."
J.M., Museum Director & Long Island Fair Manager, Old Bethpage Village Restoration, Bethpage NY
