Juggling Show: Starting with simple balls and clubs, I move on through diabolo, magic tricks, bad jokes, worse puns, devil sticks, and knives. Depending on the arena, I will add a "plate spinning" number where I have up to 5 kids all spinning plates at once with funny hats and music. It is usually Nintendo Mario-Bros. themed. If there is more adults in the audience, I will bring 4 grown men up on stage for the classic "4 chair" number where 4 men seemingly float in the air after chair are removed from under them. Mine is a new take on this classic where I train 4 men to be ninjas with toilet paper wrapped around their head like headbands. If the arena permits, I can also do a fire-eating finale where I wow audiences by eating real fire right in front of them. Don't worry, I'm totally insured...
Pirate Show: It's very similar to the juggling show, but with a pirate theme. All the acts are done with a pirate slant, I talk in a pirate accent, and the kids and adults are also made into honorary pirates.
Stilt Walking: I give hi-fives, dance, draw attention from far away, and can even make balloons while standing at least 3 feet over everyone's head. An already charismatic fellow, I can draw the attention of everyone with my flashy costumes which include a Pirate, Golfer, Tuxedo, Tourist, Uncle Sam, Toy Soldier, and I can even take requests depending on the event.
Christmas Show: Similar to the juggling show, but with a Christmas slant. I play a nerdy but cool Christmas Elf. Think Buddy Holly with curly shoes and a funny hat. The kids are made into honorary elves and the music is all holiday themed.
Living Statue: Did that statue just move? Delight and confuse guests at your event when you install a statue of a pirate which not only moves, but delights guests by interacting through subtle yet hilarious movements.
Balloons: I bend, twist, and contort balloons all while telling jokes to amaze and delight children of all ages.
Fire Performer: Sticks, Clubs, Diabolo, Balls, and Fire Eating/ Swallowing. I can do this as a stage entertainer or part of the scenery.
Adult Cabaret: As an emcee, performer, edgy clown, or custom character (I've been Ice King from Adventure Time, Mad Scientist, etc.) I perform classic sideshow and magic stunts with a contemporary flair. Human Blockhead, Geek (I bite the head off a bloody tofu), Bed of Nails, Glass Walker, Fire Eater, or even Burlesque can be performed. These shows tend to be 18 due to language and mature situations.
