"Will Shaw is quite simply a very funny man. Shaw's marvelously deadpan humor accents a juggling talent that would be spellbinding in and of itself"
Will Shaw's unique blend of physical comedy, verbal wit and dazzling skill has taken him across the country and around the world. Performing in venues as diverse as the stages of major symphony orchestras and theaters to those of schools, colleges, camps, resorts, business events and even TV and movies, he has created a universally appealing style, irresistible to audiences of all ages.
Will Shaw creates a wonderfully direct audience rapport with his juggling, unicycling, balance tricks, boomerangs, cowboy rope tricks, music, fire tricks, sight gags, clowning, audience participation, and.... a distinctly offbeat but sophisticated sense of humor steeped in the traditions of the great comedians from the silent film era to the present.
Will Shaw is the winner of the Bistro Award from Backstage, the theatrical trade paper, as one of New York City's top cabaret performers. Nationally he is recognized from commercials for Pizza Hut, IBM, Carvel, Burger King, Anderson Consulting and Terra Internet. He has performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Sesame Street with the number Two (a big loveable number two). Internationally, he has taken his show to Japan, Thailand, Liberia, Jamaica, Panama, England and Canada. He is affiliated with New York's Big Apple Circus, representing them at a variety of special events and has been an instructor for the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus Clown College.
