The Funny Waiter show is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Is it funny? Yes! The Funny Waiter is very proud, (perhaps too proud) to present a classic routine some thought was lost to the ages. The flying marshmallow routine, the classic tablecloth routine, and the plate spinning finale (Nine! Count ’em nine spinning plates!). One of the most exciting finales known to man has been given a comedy makeover. You’ll experience non-stop laughs while on the edge of your seat. Please note: Due to the intense concentration needed for this extravaganza, The Funny Waiter will once again remind you to turn off all cell phones. Did he remember his own?

ONCE , in a dream, Duke Dreamer saw himself – but smaller – (his own tiny "mini-me") high up in a cloud. He was performing the greatest show the world had ever seen! NOW , Duke recreates his fantastical dream … side-splitting props comedy, absolutely absurd dancing, a surreal "mini-me" dream sequence, the incredible "Ladder to the Sky", an innovative inflatable cloud illusion, juggling like you’ve never seen before – and then there’s that hilarious "pygmy inside the lasso" bit too. Whether it is performing incredible feats, dancing a parody of himself, or engaging the crowd with comic patter and playful absurdism, Duke Dreamer shows you that when you dream, anything is possible!
This show is an original entertainment experience by a super charged comedy stunt man. From the second Ben hits the stage his high-energy show never ceases to amaze.

An up-beat, high-flying spectacle of stunning physical prowess and impeccable timing. Viewers will be astounded by the bold competition level, dare-devil stunts and elated by this spirited demonstration of high-energy acrobatics. You will walk away exhilarated and inspired.
