Why hire Picard Maneuver?
A nerd musical comedy duo formed by comedians Adam Fanshier and Mike Hover in 2007, Picard Maneuver has been delighting audiences all of California with their one of a kind act. A combination of musical comedy, vaudeville, improvisation, and audience interaction, a Picard Maneuver show entertains not only the geek community but non geeks as well. Being a finalist in both the Uncle Clyde's and Norwalk Comedy Contest; performing for a variety of Fundraisers (C.A.S.A., Engineers Without Boarders), Comedy Clubs, and Educational Programs (Norwalk Youth Correctional) makes Picard Maneuver a perfect addition to any event.
Picard Maneuver: They’re two nerds you can’t help but love.
Named after an obscure reference from one episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Adam Fanshier and Mike Hover have a unexpected, and truly unique blend of musical comedy, vaudeville, improv, physical comedy and audience interaction that delights audiences without fail.
Adam and Mike’s unique brand of humor comes from their very honest presentation of their personal lives. They are two nerds trying to make it in a world full of “cool kids”. Their message is universal; Life is all about being comfortable in your own skin.
You don’t have to be a nerd, or ever watched an episode of Star Trek to enjoy Picard Maneuver. Their act is more than a collection of ‘Fanboy’ inside jokes- It is an honest tale of the ‘every man’. Adam and Mike have a talent for making audiences realize that being an “outsider” is more than OK— it should be embraced! It’s something that Mike proves as he flirts with his unforgettable, and hilarious, “Wookie Dance”.
From comedy clubs and bars, to the halls of prison (yes, they’ve performed in prisons), Picard Maneuver has been delighting audiences all over. Whether you were beating up nerds in high school, the ones thrown into the trashcan, or watched it from afar, Picard Maneuver is the comedy group for you.
