Step Right Up! Witness Mighty Mike throwing around bowling balls and sledgehammers as if light as a feather... while wearing a 1920s style bathing suit. You’ll be amazed as he drives nails through boards with his hand, bends horseshoes, and tears packs of cards, but try not to laugh at his dance routines.
What to Expect
My show is customizable - I have a very successful "festival style" show that features displays of strength, comedy, dancing and off the wall humor. I have also presented a "period style" show that replicates the traditional strongman show which would have been popular in the 1920s-1930s. I've done cabaret spots, silent bits, corporate events (speaking to employees, opening a fitness club, headlining a fundraiser gala). Contact me to see if I can help you meet your needs!
Mike has been performing for over 15 years and obtained the Guinness Record for World's Fastest Juggler. He began training feats of strength under Grandmaster Strongman Dennis Rogers (in a line of strongman performers from Joseph "Mighty Atom" Greenstein in 1928). Mike has since traveled the globe astounding audiences with his feats of strength and juggling comedy show.
Additional Booking Notes
I am quite self sufficient - I can provide an amplifier, and always provide my own wireless mic, music set up. I control my own music or can work with a sound manager. No particular lighting/staging requirements, however the height of the ceilings and fragility of the stage will influence which feats are presented (juggling a 10lb sledgehammer is not for faint hearted stage managers).
Influences & Inspiration
I have been trained in a line of strongmen from Joseph "Mighty Atom" Greenstein (1928) to Slim "Hammer Man" Farman, to Dennis Rogers. Their feats and knowledge are included in my show.
However I have also taken direction from contemporary clown Fraser Hooper, street performance artist Al Millar, and juggling mentor Sean Gandini. The varied influences of these artists have informed the unique style of my show.
