What do you get when you combine world-class juggling with fabulous comedy on stage? The hilarious antics of Dana Tison! He orchestrates everything into a masterpiece of theater. This brilliant blend of amazing jugglery with non-stop, rib-splitting shenanigans brings audiences to their feet!
A native of Baltimore, Maryland (but now living in Charlotte, NC), Dana is a veteran juggler, well known for his extraordinary technical prowess. After learning to juggle at age eleven, this prodigy quickly mastered the art and, two years later, won second place in an international juggling competition in Las Vegas. Since then, he has captured not only the hearts of the juggling world, but also two bronze, one silver, and seven gold medals–all in international competitions. He also earned a Bachelor’s in philosophy (cum laude), a Master’s in theology (summa cum laude), and tied the record of juggling seven clubs in the Guinness Book of World Records (woweee cum laude!).
His natural abilities, combined with training from master Russian juggler Sergei Ignatov, have enabled Dana to appear on The Learning Channel, Entertainment Tonight, Evening Magazine, national television commercials, and in publications such as Juggler’s World magazine, 4000 Years of Juggling, Juggling with Finesse, and National Geographic World magazine.
Applying physical comedy techniques learned from film and Broadway star, Avner Eisenberg, and movement instructor, Tom Casciero, Dana Tison creates an amazing symphony of innovative comedy, skill, and charisma. Every audience deserves to witness the act that is “meticulously polished and perfectly timed” (Juggle magazine).
