Alex Zerbe, the “Professional Zaniac,” moves like a rubber band from one jaw dropping stunt to another. Zerbe specializes in a physical comedy of controlled chaos, performing with a fearlessness and ease reminiscent of Dick Van Dyke or Jim Carrey. A self-described “human cartoon,” his show zigzags between high technical skill and laugh-out-loud fun. But it isn’t only for the youngest members of the family.
“Young kids love my tricks,” says Zerbe. “But teens dig my beat-boxing and Facebook jokes. And I catch adults busting up at jokes that fly right over the heads of the kids. And catching a five-pound table on my face? Everyone loves that.”
Zerbe, who has been spinning balls on audience members for over a decade, slices a stalk of celery in half with a playing card, harpoons vegetables in mid-air, and juggles ping-pong balls with his mouth. In his hat routine, he juggles, rolls and balances three bowler hats to a mash-up of songs, prompting a CultureMob.com reviewer to say, “Rarely have I seen such an example of physical grace.”
Formerly of the award-winning duo Brothers from Different Mothers, Zerbe is a two-time Guinness World Record holder and a Hacky Sack World Champion, He’s garnered praise from The Seattle Times and celebrities including Jamie Lee Curtis and Piers Morgan. He’s performed everywhere from schools libraries and corporate events to prime-time television in three countries, including the shows “America’s Got Talent!” and “Last Comic Standing.”
