Christopher offers everything!
Whether it's juggling, comedy, roving on stilts, medieval and restaurant theatre characters or a hilarious live act compere/emcee, Christopher works the crowds like no other. No matter what the age, he wins everyone's hearts. And with commanding presence on stage he is one of the few entertainers who thinks on his feet and has both the talent and experience to alter his entertainment to fit the crowd's changing mood.
Here's notes from a fan: I wanted to say how wonderful you were to work with, even though we are on opposite sides of the country. You always returned calls, emails and text which made the process easy for me. When the day came for you to perform, you made my aunts birthday the best ever! I could not be there in person to see myself, but my aunt and cousins could not stop talking about how funny and absolutely entertaining you were. When I saw the video, you blew me away, your awesome. We all want to see you in your own show. Your impersonation of the rocky horror, Frank-N- Furter was spot on and so hilarious. You made my aunts day and week, that's all we talked about. Thank you for sharing your great talent with all of us. You are truly a Great Performer and would recommend you to anyone and everyone.
Sincerely one of your biggest Fans
