Have you ever seen anyone balance a six-foot stepladder on their face – or juggle five balls – or spin plates on his fingertips? Paul Phariss’ 45-minute comedy juggling show has feats of amazement, hilarious audience participation, and plenty of laughter. He even juggles flaming torches while blindfolded (venue permitting)! You may have seen him performing at Walt Disney World, Dixie Stampede, or Silver Dollar City. Shows may be shortened and customized to fit clients’ needs. For inspirational programs, Paul adds a message to his comedy juggling show. Paul tells his empowering story of overcoming a childhood brain injury that caused severe learning disabilities. His inability to read throughout elementary, middle, high school, and even college didn’t stop Paul from trying. At the age of 30 Paul was able to start reading and continues to improve. He now combines his intensive brain therapies, education and passion to inspire and help children to read and persevere. Paul inspires kids – and adults – to keep trying whatever they are struggling with, especially reading. He also teaches kids about bravery with his hilarious antics in one volunteer participation sketch. He wraps the whole show up with his finale of balancing a six-foot stepladder on his face!read less
