STEVE GOODTIME
A hilarious rock n’ roll circus show performed by the super handsome and witty Steve Goodtime. With routines including mouthstick, fire breathing, and juggling, he tops it all off with the greatest rock show your odd hippy uncle has ever seen! He’s also great at air guitar, high fives, and kick jumps. Steve isn’t the only one that gets to have all the fun, there is plenty of volunteer participation in the show. If you don’t make it on stage, don’t worry, you’ll still feel like you’re in the greatest party of your life!
MICHAEL JAMES​
Michael James takes his 30+ years of magic experience and mixes it up with his unique sense of humor to present a comical magic show like no other! Witness a miracle with a piece of fruit, an ancient Chinese mystery and more than a few surprises along the way. Jam-packed with audience participation and enough laughs to make you choke on your vegan hotdog, this is the show you will be talking about this for weeks to come!

Troy is the former lead of broadway show STOMP, and Alonzo is a comedian dj and drummer from Toronto, they both perform at Toronto Raptors games as the official drummers for the team. get ready to laugh and dance and get involved and be amazed by amazing beats moves flips and stick tricks.
