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.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
