Michael Jay Garner’s variety entertainment show is a hit with children and adults alike. His surprising tricks with found objects as simple as a gum wrapper, or as large as a six foot folding table, are guaranteed to produce wide eyes and enthusiastic applause. Capable of customizing his performance to almost any stage, for any age makes Michael a perfect evening program option for summer camps. In addition to found object manipulation, Michael’s interactive show includes juggling, feats of balancing, whip cracking, music, comedy, and even fire performing if desired. A seven summer camp clown at Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, Michael is familiar with the specific challenges of summer camp performing, and thrives in the camp environment. Michael has performed internationally with the Big Apple Circus, as well as touring with Britney Spears on her Circus World Tour. He is a professional in all aspects of performance, ensuring an appropriate, safe and fun show for all.
