Great act

I hired Craig after seeing the positive reviews--it was for my kids first birthday party. He was very easy to deal with on the phone. Arrived on time with all the equipment he needed. He did a great job of keeping the kids entertained and in splits. He also did some really cool tricks on his unicycle as well as an amazing final act involving carrying multiple chairs on his chin--he got almost an ovation with this one. I would hire him again and there were several friends who wanted his information after the party!

Crazy Craig Rocks!!!

I hired Crazy Craig for our Pack's Blue and Gold Banquet. He was great to work with in scheduling and even better with the performance. It's tough to keep 60+ kids, ranging in age from 2 to 10, excited...but he did. We've had other various performances at our Blue and Gold in years past, but Crazy Craig blew away the competition. He interacted with them and even allowed them to use some of their unspent energy in a good way. Every kid was raving about him afterwards!!!

AMAZING SHOW!!!

We had Craig perform at our community Purim party and he was the best performer we've ever had. The great thing about Craig is that he entertained both the adults and kids, the adults were as engaged in the show as the kids.
I would definitely hire Craig for another show

Crazy Craig was a wonderful addition to our Winter Carnival!

Crazy Craig made balloon animals for all of the children at our Winter Carnival. He was great with the kids and everyone left happy. He also went to the park and juggled between shows and brought more patrons to our second program! Thanks Craig!

Review by Paula J.

He was very entertaining for our all school assembly that kicked off our Relay for Life. The kids loved it and also understood his message about never giving up and once you put your mind to something to keep trying until you succeed!

Overview

Imagine sitting comfortably in your chair next to your friends and family enjoying a really energetic guy do rapid fast juggling moves back to back, and then, pointing to you, wants you to come on stage in front of everyone and help him out! What is he going to do with me? Saw me in half? Well if your a Mom, you are most likely to be hurled in the air onto his shoulders as you hold a hula hoop and as all the kids surround you playing Crazy Craig Extreme Basket Ball and you, of course sitting on Crazy Craig's shoulders, holding the hoop out in front of you next to your neck, are the basket ball hoop as your head is the backboard. If you are a Dad, you would be asked to lie down on then ground. Can you believe it! You are wearing a shirt and tie and now you find yourself on the floor and Crazy Craig pulls out the machetes to juggle over your body. Of course you are blind folded and after hearing the clanging of the knives and the crowd going wild you have nothing better to do than to bow and continue to watch Crazy Craig and not know what to expect next! After he juggles on a five foot unicycle he then balances up to twelve folding chairs on his chin at the same time! After that he put the chairs in a circle and had about seven Dads from the audience sit in the chairs and having them leaning back on each others laps, Crazy Craig Removed all of the chairs they were initially sitting in. It was unbelievable and hilarious trying to watch the guys get up! Amazing Show!

Additional Booking Notes

Performed in huge auditoriums and gymnasiums to small seven foot ceiling basements. I'm very adaptable and can fit the show to the environment without sacrificing excellence.

Crazy Craig Juggling Variety Show

Craig Wise, also known as Crazy Craig has been performing for 10 years now and loves what he does and can see himself touring colleges, schools, corporations, cruise lines and resorts in the upcoming year. Craig lives in Ypsilanti, MI, which is near Ann Arbor where he spends a few nights a week practicing with other performers. Craig has recently mastered juggling 5 clubs on the five foot unicycle and is now practicing juggling 7 balls and new acts for the upcoming year. One of his newest routines is eating an apple while juggling it with a 10 pound bowling ball and a machete. He now is working on doing that on top of a rola-bola which is a board on a cylinder and one must balance themselves without rolling off.

Craig moved to Ypsilanti, Michigan in December 2012 from the Toledo, Ohio area where he resided there for two years. In 2013, 75 out of the 145 shows he performed where in the Toledo Area. He was honored to perform in Hollywood California in November and do a 4 minute act including the 12 folding chair balance on his chin.

Before Ohio, Craig lived in Connecticut where he finished high school at Southington High with honors and completed a four year liberal arts bachelors of theater at Eastern Connecticut State University. His entertainment career took off in the summer of 2003 when he worked as a performer at Lake Compouce Amusement park, just a few miles away from his home in Southington. He was the costume character manager as well as performed juggling, devil-sticks, unicycle, stilts, balloon twisting, and magic around the park. For three summers of hard work and practice and experience at the amusement park, Craig started doing a variety show for birthday parties and other venues. He picked up 5 agents while attending college and they booked him throughout his stay in New England. He performed over 350 shows in those 4 years at college.

Since he wanted to be closer to family, he moved to Ohio in January 2010, about 7 months after graduation from college.

Craig Wise now lives in Ypsilanti, Michigan, near Ann Arbor and provides his 45 minute family comedy juggling variety show.

He has made an abundance of friends in the performing arts in the Ann Arbor area, and continues to network and promote his business to one day be the best comedy juggler in the nation or even the world. He wants to move towards motivational speaking and letting the world know that they have what it takes to accomplish anything they set their mind to.

Influences & Inspiration

Working at Lake Compounce Amusement Park in Connecticut, I met other jugglers and watched and practiced a lot to perfect my skills. They inspired me to keep going, no matter how many times you drop, just keep picking them back up. And most importantly, "It's not how many things you can juggle, it's how well you do with what you got."
