Alex Zerbe: The Zaniac at the Teck Family Series

March 5 3:00 to 4:00 pm

Trail & District Arts Council presents two-time Guinness World Record holder Alex Zerbe – The Zaniac as part of the TECK Family Series on Sunday, March 5 at 3 pm at The Bailey Theatre.

When was the last time you laughed as hard as your kids? With captivating amounts of energy, Alex Zerbe moves like a rubber band from one end of the stage to the other beatboxing, juggling, dancing, singing, and performing magic.

The “Professional Zaniac,” whoʼs been cracking jokes onstage for almost 15 years, zigzags between physical stunts and non-stop comedy. During the show vegetables are sliced in half by flying playing cards, flaming torches and bowling balls are juggled with ease and every audience volunteer leaves the stage in triumph.

A self-described “human cartoon,” his show isnʼt only for the kids in the family. “I try to make my show like the movie Shrek, super entertaining for the kids but there’s a whole other level of comedy for teens and adults.” says Zerbe.

Formerly of the award-winning duo Brothers from Different Mothers, Zerbe is a Hacky Sack World Champion, was voted The Pacific Northwest’s Funniest Prop Comic and is currently ranked Seattle’s 3rd Best Air Guitarist. Heʼs performed everywhere from cruise ships and comedy clubs to prime-time television in three countries, including “Americaʼs Got Talent!” and “Last Comic Standing.”
