 Our 2016 Feature Performer ~ Mighty Mike ~ 

Combining years of juggling, magic, and balloon art with the lost art of strongman feats (driving a nail through a board with bare hand, phone book/card tearing, balancing heavy objects, and bending metal bars), Mike created a unique show bringing a form of traditional entertainment into the modern era. 

The lessons of the old time strongmen are carried forward in the message of the show: healthy habits, discipline, mind over matter, and positive motivation. However, the show also takes a page from the art of modern busking: quick wit, audience interaction, and fun.
