With captivating amounts of energy, Alex Zerbe moves like a rubber band from one end of the stage to the other in his show Alex Zerbe’s Zaniac Comedy Show. 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,” which comes to the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Jan. 20 at 2 p.m.
The “Professional Zaniac,” who’s been cracking jokes onstage for almost 15 years, zigzags between physical stunts and non-stop comedy. During the show vegetables are sliced in half by flying playing cards, flaming torches and bowling balls are juggled with ease and every audience volunteer leaves the stage in triumph.
A self-described “human cartoon,” his show isn’t just for the kids in the family.
“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,” says Zerbe.
