Mark Nizer juggles comedy, technology, thrills in RIC show, March 10


Mark Nizer
Entertainer Mark Nizer brings his acclaimed one-man show to RIC – an experience that Performance Magazine calls “nothing less than brilliant” – in a Performing Arts Series presentation on Thursday, March 10, at 7:30 p.m. in the Auditorium in Roberts Hall.

“Mark Nizer 3D LIVE” features daring feats of juggling, interspersed with his signature blend of comedy throughout the show.

Nizer seems to make the impossible possible when he juggles everything from bowling balls to propane torches to electric carving knives, all with a unique wit and panache.

The experience is taken to another dimension by Nizer’s use of 3D technology. Donning special glasses, the audience is treated to astounding illusions, laser sequences and other exciting 3D effects.

Mark Nizer has taken his show to a variety of venues around the world, including The Improv, The Comedy Store, Walt Disney World, numerous college campuses, and all major cruise lines.

He has also performed in thousands of opera houses, civic centers, festivals and performing arts centers including the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

Entertainment Magazine described Nizer as “simply incredible,” and “the hottest juggler on the entertainment market.”
