Russ Merlin calls himself a prop comic and is a “Tonight Show” alum who has been making people laugh in 51 countries on five continents. From New York’s Carnegie Hall to command performances for the Queen of England and the Sultan of Brunei, Merlin has used his unique talents on some of the most exotic stages on the planet. He enjoys drawing people in with his unusual audience participation stunts.

Ivan Pecel blends world-class juggling, audience participation and clean humor into his performances. He entertains by juggling ping pong balls using only his mouth, and that’s just for starters. His routines combine everything from rolling a single ball around his face to some of the most intense technical juggling routines ever assembled.
