The AWOL Aeros return to the Umbrella, leading a line-up of child circus prodigies from Echo Theater, Afterglow Aerial Arts and more of our city's finest schools. We're always thrilled to see what the future holds for our bohemian arts underground, and these are the fledgeling artists who will bring that future about. Get ahead of the curve.
Not only that, but we're bringing back beloved novelty singer Al Simmons and cowboy clown Leapin' Louie to keep all those kids and parents entertained.
Tickets available NOW at:
Al Simmons' one-man, multi-prop, music-filled, off the wall performances have elevated audiences world-wide to collective giggles and all-out guffaws. At once childlike in its simplicity and sophisticated in its execution, Al's humour touches a responsive chord in people of every age.
n the entertainment business since 1970, the popular Manitoba-based children's performer is likely Canada's most versatile comedian. He puts on a funfest, full of bizarre gadgets, wild costumes, unique songs, crazy vaudeville-inspired routines and of course bad puns. His album "Celery Stalks at Midnight" won the Juno award (Canadian equivalent of a Grammy) back in 1996, and two of his other albums have also received nominations.
Straight from the Wild West, where life is cheap and courage is costly, Leapin' Louie Lichtenstein is never without a spare dollar. With his lasso from El Paso and a bullwhip that even Wyatt Earp couldn't Dodge, this buckaroo buffoon is like sand beneath the chaps of our wrathful ringmaster. Mr. Lichtenstein was recently awarded the title of Best Comedy Roper at the 2007 Will Rogers Expo of the Wild West Arts Club, Claremore, Oklahoma; and the Prix d'Or, 1st Prize at the Vevey International Festival des Artistes de la Rue in Vevey, Switzerland.
