In Canada88 Newspaper: Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year shows were huge fun this year; City Councillor Joe Magliocca assisted me with an illusion by testing his skill with weaponry, while Councillor Sean Chu strapped me into a straight jacket.  Regional Chinese Newspaper, Canada88, was on hand to capture some fun moments and cover the event.

Working with the local non-profit cultural organizations is a great opportunity to flex my skills; stage entertainment for specific cultural groups can be quite tricky.  I’m always acutely aware that not all the comedic moments and effects are suitable for all cultural groups, and I take great pains to choose routines that are most effective for each audience.  Though I can speak Chinese, I prefer to perform in English, while ensuring the visual effects, and non-verbal communication will be inclusive of any non-English speaking audience members.
