Master of Ceremonies - Brent McCoy
Meet Brent McCoy, a wildly entertaining comic performer who happens to be dressed as a construction worker. It's like Cirque du Soleil meets The Home Depot! In the Real McCoy Show, he combines circus, comedy, and audience participation for knee-slapping entertainment. His charming character and technical abilities make him the perfect performer for YOU. This ain't just a funny guy in a hard hat, it's the Real McCoy!
Guest artists include:
Pinky (Pinky Aiello)
Pinky Aiello was born Deaf and, it would seem, born to juggle. As America's only professional Deaf female juggler she has performed at hundreds of venues and has literally been on TV, in Movies and even performed on the Midway at the fabulous Circus Circus Resort in Las Vegas.
We are especially pleased to have Pinky join us for this 35ht RIT Juggle In as she ia a graduate of NTID and a former student of the RIT juggling class. (She learned to juggle from Juggle-In founder Greg Moss)
For more abot the many different performances she does check out her webpage at http://www.pinkythejuggler.com
Yuta is an amazing juggler, and he is also currently a RIT Graduate Student specializing in Color Science. Born and raised in Okayama, Japan he knew nothing about juggling until age 18 when he came across juggling in Kyoto, and joined the Juggling Donuts.
Specializing in 3 ball juggling and rapid spins, he has performed juggling since 2005 in places like the EJC2011 open stage in Munich Germany, JJF(Japan Juggling Festival) 2007 championship and other juggling events in Kyoto,Japan includign shopping centers, schools and festivals.
|Deaf since he was 18 months old, Nicolas Cheucle is a juggler and circus artist from France. He performs in stage productions and also teaches Deaf and hearing children and adults in juggling and dancing. He is a founder of the performance-company “1880”. He has performed at the European Juggling Convention and multiple other venues.|
|Based out of Durango, Colorado, Erin Stephens performs routines that seamlessly combine a feminine finesse with a technical prowess, a graceful stage presence with a little bit of sass. An award winning entertainer, she currently juggles with Salt Fire Circus and has recently had the honor of performing at 2 international circus festivals near Mexico City and Guadalajara, Mexico. Erin is currently on the Board of Directors for the International Jugglers’ Association (IJA), and is enjoying discovering the “political side” of juggling, while implementing programs to benefit jugglers around the world. This will be Erin’s second time returning to the RIT Spring Juggle-In as a special guest, and she is super excited to do so.|
|Ben Christensen has performed all over the USA with his one-man-show and as a part of various productions including time spent with the Circus Hall of Fame and the Laugh Out Loud Show. Appearing on stage first at age 4, clowning, juggling and magic tricks have been his calling for a long time. You can learn more about Ben at www.bencomedy.com|
|I started performing my one-man comedy juggling and strange feats act
in the early 90s. My obsession with developing original material and
hazardous situations has led to “The Toilet Paper Tightrope of Death”
and many other skills, stunts, feats, acts, and predicaments. I’ve
performed my “Shirt Trick” on The Late Show with David Letterman and
my “Pants Trick” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. I am currently
working on a top-secret project involving magnets. Find me at
Rochester Parkour is a community-based organization founded in 2007 by Zachary Cohn and Charles Moreland. Originally a weekly training session that offered free instruction to people of all ages, Rochester Parkour has become a full-fledged movement phenomenon, bringing New York’s first dedicated, indoor parkour facility to Rochester, NY. Featuring I-Beams, scaffolding and rails, wall boxes, vault boxes, and a plethora of precision trainers, the RocPK gym is a fully-customizable obstacle course wonderland.
