The Show

It’s Kinda like Cirque Du Soleil… But at the Home Depot.

It might seem like he he belongs in a construction site, but this powerhouse stunt comedy entertainer is full of surprises. With natural charm, lightning fast wit and breathtaking stunts, Brent will win over even the most reserved audience member. Whether he’s juggling a giant wrench, safety cone and plunger, breakdancing with audience volunteers, or balancing on a board on a ball on a bench, there’s never a dull moment. What’s more, Brent can perform just about anywhere, indoors and out, for audiences of all ages. A truly universal and adaptable stunt comedy show, this ain’t no imitation… it’s the Real McCoy.

Brent grew up on a small farm in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.

He studied fine arts (and Juggling) at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. He has taken numerous workshops at Celebration Barn Theater with Avner Eisenberg, Julie Goell, Fritz Grobe,and Keith Johnstone. Brent has been on the prestigious Faneuil Hall Street Performers roster since 2009. His work has taken him all over the world, but he still calls Vermont home.

Brent’s Projects

Her Majesty’s Secret Circus Show

Honeymoon and Butterfly are two highly trained operatives on a mission to save the planet from boredom—one show at a time. They shoot the world’s only bow and plunger arrow high into the sky and catch it on a tiny target, on a giant stealth cycle, in ridiculous action suits. Aided by moderately high IQs, audience sleeper agents, and all the elements of a spy thriller spoof, Her Majesty’s Secret Circus is comic espionage at its finest.

Vermont Vaudeville

A Grassroots Theater Company founded in 2009. Vermont Vaudeville has worked with over 60 guest acts in 19 different theaters and created 17 brand new productions, reaching many thousands of people throughout Vermont.

Yes! Theater
