When was the last time you laughed as hard as your kids?
The Zaniac Comedy Show is a gut-busting delight for the whole family, and it’s coming to the Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre in March.
Alex Zerbe bounces from one end of the stage to the other like “an untamed rubber band” in the show, coming to Vernon March 4.
It’s the fourth performance in the 2022-23 Spotlight Season Kids Series.
Jaws will drop and eyes will pop as Zerbe juggles bowling balls, giant knives, and slices vegetables in half with a flying playing card.
Beatboxing, juggling, dancing, singing, music and magic are just a few of the things that led Piers Morgan of America’s Got Talent to call Alex “The total package.”
Zerbe has been cracking jokes on stage for almost 15 years, zig-zagging between physical stunts and non-stop comedy. A self-described “human cartoon,” his show isn’t just for kids.
“I try to make my show like the movie Shrek, super entertaining for the kids but there’s a whole other level of comedy for teens and adults,” he says.
Formerly of the award-winning duo Brothers from Different Mothers, Zerbe is a hacky sack world champion, a two-time Guinness world record holder, was voted the Pacific Northwest’s funniest prop comic and is currently ranked Seattle’s third best air guitarist.
He has performed everywhere from cruise ships and comedy clubs to prime-time television in three countries, including America’s Got Talent! and Last Comic Standing.
“This show is sure to capture your inner 10-year-old,” says VDPAC artistic director Erin Kennedy. “Think Jim Carrey’s physical comedy meets a boundary-pushing Guinness world record attempt. It’s jaw-droppingly impressive and absolutely wacky!”
Tickets are $12 for the 2 p.m. show.
