april vacation: bryson lang juggling show, april 23, 1:00pm & 5:00pm

Bryson Lang is a Comedy-Manipulator. He takes both ordinary and out-of-the-ordinary objects and literally spins them into a visual tapestry in a distinctive and dynamic way.

At Bryson’s show you’ll see: flying sombreros, sharp sickles, huge spinning rings, upside down bounce-juggling, giant beach balls, glo-in-the-dark objects, a tennis racquet and always a few surprises. The Press of Atlantic City said, “…quick-witted comedy with mind-blowing juggling skills, Bryson Lang’s act is a sight to behold!”

Some audience members will also join Bryson in the spotlight to add an extra dimension to the performance and bridge the gap between the stage and the crowd.
If you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience… go to Disneyland. But after Disneyland, if you want to see something fresh, new, fun and exciting, hire the comical and physical entertainer that Toyota called, “Spectacular” and Coca Cola labeled, “Awesome”!

See why Bryson Lang is called, “The Cure For the Common Show”!
