Mark Nizer

Date

Aug 1, 2017
08:15pm – 10:30pm

Location
Hoover Auditorium

The phrase “nothing less than brilliant” has been used to describe the outrageous comedy antics and expertly crafted juggling feats of Mark Nizer.

As one of the greatest entertainment comedians and jugglers performing today, Nizer’s wild exploits have landed him on MTV, HBO’s “Just for Laughs” and alongside the likes of Arsenio Hall, Bob Hope, Jerry Seinfeld, Gladys Knight, The Temptations, Ray Charles and Barry Manilow.

The late Bob Hope once said of Nizer, “He just keeps getting better, and I didn’t think that was possible.”

Nizer has taken his one-man show to a variety of venues around the world. He has also performed in thousands of opera houses, civic centers and performing arts centers including the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center for Performing Arts three times.

The onstage antics involve juggling five ping pong balls thrown 20 feet in the air using only his mouth and juggling a burning propane tank, running electric carving knife and 16-pound bowling ball.

Don’t miss Nizer’s combination of original comedy, world-class juggling, movement, music and technology that promises a spellbinding evening.
