The three performers, who will juggle up a hilarious night of showing off, great tricks, great jokes and great stories, are:
- Mark Hayward: World Yo-Yo champion from Regent Square.
- Mike Perry: Storyteller and Ringling Circus veteran from Forest Hills.
- Howard Mincone: Physical comedian, juggler and a very personable entertainer from the South Hills area.
"It's the first anniversary of the Pittsburgh Show-Offs," Perry said.
The group meets on Wednesday nights at the Union Project, a converted church that offers community space, to promote variety arts, such as juggling, circus skills, Vaudeville, Yo-Yo tricks and top spinning. The participants include those who want to learn and those who want to practice and hone their skills.
"There's a broad spectrum of abilities," Perry said, noting he'd like to see a performance group grow out of the Show-Offs in the future.
