Experience the Amazingly Funny world of Comedy in Motion with Canada’s favorite juggler, Bob Cates. This memorable interactive comedy show includes advanced juggling, wild unicycling and balancing skills, black light and laser effects, Dance Dance Revolution while juggling, Chinese Yo Yo and cigar box manipulation, illusions, slapstick and an insane 24 “real” plate spinning finale that you will remember for a long long time. He is one of few performers left in North America performing authentic plate spinning – his signature piece. Overall, the show is very fast paced, highly interactive and uses situational comedy and advanced skills to keep audience members of all ages on the edge of their seats right to the very end.
