On your mark, get set . . . LAUGH! At the Newport Public Library!
Zaniac Alex Zerbe comes to Newport Library’s Literacy Park Wednesday, June 22 at 1:00 pm for a show of wild juggling tricks, zany humor, danceable music and lots of audience participation.
Zerbe hails from Seattle and is a two-time Guinness World Record holder who was voted Seattle’s Funniest Prop Comic. He has appeared on prime-time television in three countries including the hit NBC TV shows, “America’s got Talent!” and “Last Comic Standing”. He is a Hacky Sack World Champion and half of the award-winning comedy act, Brothers from Different Mothers. When Jamie Lee Curtis saw his one-man show she said, “Boy are you talented, FANTASTIC!”
Zerbe is a gifted physical comedian and human cartoon. In addition to his juggling skills, he performs beat-boxing, music looping, silly dances and funny raps. He is an original when it comes to family-friendly entertainment.
The Zaniac will also perform at the other Lincoln County libraries. Wednesday at 10:00 am he will be in Waldport and at 6:30 pm at Driftwood Library in Lincoln City. Thursday his tour takes him to east county for a 11:00 am show at the Toledo Library and a 1:00 pm show at the Siletz Library.
