Juggling comedian to send unlikely props airborn

Written by 

Juggler Mark Nizer will bring a blend of comedy, juggling, music and technology to Western Carolina University at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 28, as part of the Galaxy of Stars Series.

The winner of the International Juggling Championships, Nizer juggles items in  unlikely combinations, like a 16-pound bowling ball, a lit propane torch and a buzzing chain saw, or electric carving knives and lasers at 1,000 revolutions per minute.

Up next in the series at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24, is John Davidson, star of music, television, film and stage, followed by the Popovich Comedy Pet Theater, juggling and European-style comedy featuring cats and dogs rescued from animal shelters, at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 1.

The performance will be held at Fine and Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for senior citizens, and $5 for students and children.

And yet, here we were, drinks in hand, smiles plastered across our faces, as family members and dates for the wedding stood in front of us, eager to capture the moment we all were huddled as one.
