"Gaines' novelty act
nabbed a well-deserved
'Pick of the Fringe'
award at this year's
Capital Fringe Festival,
and in transferring
to the Warehouse it has
lost none of its fizz."

The NEW SHOW
from 5 star award winning
performer David Gaines

"... like Popeye meets Chaplin
in a Bugs Bunny cartoon!"

 

 

 

"a fast-paced solo performance
presenting a spectacular circus comedy,
full of danger and romance."


 

Ta-da gesture in front of amber cyc

"A sweet story of love,
romance, abduction,
a chase across the high wire,
and an unexpectedly spectacular
happy ending. "


 

"The man is pure electricity,
the mime child of Steve Martin and Charlie Chaplin.
My imagination hasn't seen this much action in ages.
… It was truly magical!" ."

- Kevin Karr - Rochester Fringe


"It's a good, old-fashioned story, the kind that might be told
in a Buster Keaton silent,
or perhaps a Saturday morning Looney Tunes.
But here, it's all told by David Gaines.
One man. On a bare stage. Without words.

Imagine that. "
