Comedy Juggler to Perform at Averett


September 6, 2012



In the world of comedy juggler Mark Nizer, the impossible is possible; and on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 7:30 p.m. in Averett University's Pritchett Auditorium, Nizer will prove it. Nizer's show, which is free and open to the public, is part of the University's Arts@Averett Series.

An international juggling champion, Nizer is considered one of the greatest entertainment comedians and jugglers performing today. He has performed on MTV, HBO's Just for Laughs and Arsenio Hall and in venues around the world. He has opened for Jerry Seinfeld, Bob Hope, Gladys Knight and Ray Charles.

Don't miss the combination of original comedy, world class juggling, movement, music and technology that promises a spellbinding evening. Nizer, who has been performing for more than 20 years, has been known to juggle a 16-pound bowling ball, a lit propane torch and a buzzing chain saw. He's also been known to add electric carving knives – after they've been turned on.

For more information about Nizer's performance call 434-791-5620.
