Little About Michael
has been performing magic as a magician for over 25 years. He has traveled across Canada
entertaining in schools, malls, nightclubs, restaurants and had numerous appearances on
television. Another aspect of his unique performance is his trade shows. Michael custom
tailors each trade show appearance to promote clients products or
services. In most cases, magic effects are created or routines to the actual
product. So, whether it is a close-up or stage performances, for small intimate
gatherings or large corporations, Michael has a way to ENTERTAIN that suits any budget.
Michael is just that, 'a clown.' Twister is one of the few professional
clowns to break out of the mold and dare to be different. Michael strives to
promote what an entertainer really is; a comedic performer. For this reason, his main show is not
just a magic show but a entertaining comedy fun show. His ability to adlib and improvise sets him
apart from other performers. In the past, Twister has performed magic for Tony Curtis,
David Copperfield, Jerry Van Dyke, Gordie Tapp, Meatloaf and Jim Carey just to name a few.
Twister has been twisting balloons for 20 years and in 1989, he put out one of the
first videos that taught how to twist balloons titled, "Balloon Creations." This
video has been sold in countries around the world. Twister has even developed a weave
technique used to create large multi-balloon sculptures. This method is now being used by
balloon twisters around the world thanks to Larry Moss of Balloon
TWISTER, (HE WAS ONLY KNOWN AS MICHAEL THEN) has been entertaining
audiences for over 25 years and has performed for audiences across Canada. Since
the age of 11 (this was when he was first introduced to the art of magic.) to when he was
12 years when in search of an audience, he would go door - to - door willing to perform
for anyone who would answer.(if only he had combined this with "AVON" he would
be rich today).
Since then MICHAEL has appeared on several Television shows , theatres, nightclubs
and restaurants. Including a 2 1/2 year engagement at Stages
Night club. Then TWISTER was born from many comedic performances and the idea of
costumes and fresh new look (and I'm not in the witness relocation program) became the
clown in me!
TWISTER is more than a magician, he is an ENTERTAINER, and it is for this
reason that TWISTER has various acts that he offers, such as Magic, Comedic performances,
Balloon twisting in formats such as: Close-up, Stage and Corporate settings.
Close-up entertaining is when the magic happens under your nose and in your
hands. Such as cards ,coins etc.
Balloon sculptures can also be incorporated with these shows.
This form is perfect for restaurants
This is my favorite as it allows the true comedic artist in TWISTER to be released as he
has fun with the crowd as they go about their business.
This form is perfect for malls. In the mall setting it is great as malls are indoors with
no worry of bad weather and when advertised gets the audience into the mall and does not
just invite them in for minimal time frames as with set show times for the stage
As well, balloons can be incorporated into this type of show.
Twister's Stage performance offer a unique blend of Magic and Stand-up comedy.
Combined with audience participation and Twister's sharp wit can only
equal fun and surprises. This is a real crowd pleaser.
Conventions and Clubs
Twister can show others in the field of entertaining his many views and
methods of Entertaining for groups from a small Clown Ring or magic club., even your next
clown convention etc. In these lectures and demonstrations , many different areas are
shared such as "Entertaining with Balloons", "Impromptu
performances", "improvisational skills"
TWISTER offers corporate events for sales meetings.(let's motivate!)Trade shows
(let's move it!) and travel ( let's move!) TWISTER incorporates your
companies product or service into his performance which in turn advertises in
a subtle manner that helps the product be remembered longer and more favorably. these
types of shows usually involve Michael as himself and not TWISTER .
