David Darwin is the natural selection for your entertainment. Dave presents a laugh-a-minute show of juggling, sideshow, and comedy. He will keep you riveted with amazing feats to keep you and your guests talking for years.

Whether you need an exciting hour of sideshow or a half-hour, family-friendly juggling show, Dave can customize to your needs. Imagine being entertained with the silliness of juggling three balls while playing the harmonica, the danger of eating and manipulating real fire, or the bizarre sounds of bare feet walking across broken glass!

Dave’s act will thrill you with whip cracking, plate spinning, lasso, ball spinning, unicycling and more! And be prepared to laugh yourself out of your seat as Dave juggles, dances and sings with both legs behind his head in an act that earned him an appearance on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”.
