1. Where are you willing to travel to?
Anywhere! I love seeing new places, whether it’s just down the road or on the other side of the world. I have performed in all 50 states and over 30 countries on almost every continent. Wherever you are located, I would love to come to your school.
2. Do you offer discounts?
3. Do you charge for travel expenses?
4. Do you jump in water at your shows?
5. Do you have time for question and answer during your show?
6. How long is your show?
7. How much room do you need? What kind of stage setup do you like?
This is a tricky question. I have jumped in pretty much every space allotment known to man, but I do have some preferences that make sure we have enough room to do everything in the show. On that front, below are the most common preferences.Height: The best ceiling height is 12 feet or higher. I can work with lower, but it limits some of the skills that I do.
Width: I prefer an area that is 20 feet or wider. I can certainly work with smaller than this, but 20 feet allows me ample room to move with the unicycle and some of the audience participation things I do.
Depth: 10 feet or deeper is preferred. I do need to have enough room so that I am not hitting people in the front row with my rope.
Here comes the fun part. My primary concern when setting up for a show is that everyone can see as well as possible. Sometimes this requires thinking a little outside of the box. If you have a stage that has enough room to work with and is up higher than the audience, I will prefer to be on the stage. This allows everyone to be able to see better. If you don’t have a stage and there are bleachers, I prefer everyone be seated in the bleachers. I don’t mind having a couple rows of students on the floor, but having more in the bleachers is preferred.
If you have a gym without bleachers and no stage then I typically try to seat the students in a semi-circle. This allows more students a front row seat. I try to limit the number of rows as much as possible since the further back someone sits, the harder time they will have being able to see my feet.
If you have any questions about the setup, I am always happy to help discuss your particular space and how best to set things up. Give me a call or send an email and we’ll get things figured out.
