Described by many as a poet, virtuoso and expert comedian, Jamie Adkins’ one-man show will be making an appearance this March 8 at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre.
To simply call him a clown would belittle his artistic capabilities. From the young age of 13, Adkins found his calling as a street performer in San Diego, delighting passersby with his unique blend of comedic performances and acrobatic talents.
A former member of Canada’s own Cirque Éloize, Adkins’ previous spectacle “Typo,” toured the world with over 200 performances.
Balancing across a tight wire, juggling just about anything and catching lemons thrown from the audience on a fork between his teeth — Adkins’ does it all.
His latest performance, “Circus Incognitus” tells the story of a vulnerable everyman struggling to unveil his latest act. But at every turn, another prop goes rogue. His ladder disintegrates, his chair runs off even his hat doesn’t seem to want to stay on his head.
If you’re looking for an afternoon filled with gut-busting laughter, pay Adkins’ a visit. This one is fun for the whole family. Tickets start at $36 per adult and $18 per child. Families (two adults and two children) run for $90.
