I had the honor to perform for the Shreveport Regional Arts Council CCW: Performance
a small town boy with Southern charm, Arty Dodger has spent years honing his craft of the art of juggling and balance. With the influences of early vaudeville and variety performers, Arty boasts a wide repertoire, including stilt walking, fire eating and hat, cane, and cigar manipulation as well as high energy juggling with fire, knives, and any other inanimate juggling objects. Arty Dodger is a dangerously sophisticated Southern gentleman juggler. A native to the stage, his ability for variety lends itself to adaptability in performing including sideshows, Burlesque halls, variety shows, festivals, carnivals, corporate functions, and any other juggling buffooneries that beseech him. Arty Dodger is a dapper dabbler in danger, a virtuoso of vaudeville, the Beethoven of balance, a juggernaut of juggle, and devourer incendium.
Arty has performed at many different types of events including corporate, festivals, burlesque, cabaret, nightclubs, and more in the South.
Arty has an attractive theatrical presence, a keen sense of timing, and admirable skills.
Smartly dressed in necktie and tweeds, Arty Dodger performs a less-is-more new vaudeville act that has him tossing champagne bottles and knives, balancing umbrellas, and various other gentlemanly objects. Combined with jaw dropping hat, cane, and cigar tricks as well as high energy dangerous juggling and balance, Arty brings excitement to all ages.
Starting his performance career on the streets, Arty has been invited to perform his unique, hilarious and jaw-dropping act at local events and festivals.
You might remember those muscle heads that came to your high school or the old vaudeville act with a muscle man in a striped leotard and handlebar mustache displaying feats of strength. Well Arty is here to show you how even the slimmest gentleman can woo a lady.
As part of the classic sideshow, Arty brings the heat with his fire manipulating. From fire eating to fire juggling, Arty is the devourer incendium.
