With a toolbox full of props, and some ingeniously interconnected circus feats, Brent McCoy constructs a wild physical comedy laugh factory! Using astonishing physical dexterity, Brent transforms items like a foam wrench, a rubber plunger and a traffic cone into pure fun. Intelligent, precise and absolutely hilarious, Brent’s antics have been described as “Cirque de Soleil meets Home Depot!” Home improvement was never this wacky!
Part of Canal Park Playhouse’s Matinee/Brunch series, brunch at the theater’s Waffle Iron Café is available before and after the show.
