Piano Level, Jones Hall
Join us in the lobby prior to the show for a free performance by
Bruce Manners, Comedy Juggler.

Bruce Manners has been performing his act, “Comedy & Juggling and Stuff,” for over 25 years, appearing at a wide variety of venues.  From corporate events to county fairs, comedy clubs to backyard pool parties, Bruce has seen it all (and a bit too much of some of it).  With a blend of old school juggling and stand-up comedy, his act is best described as “Stand-up Juggling.”  Bruce was recently invited to perform at the International Jugglers Association Convention in El Paso, Texas where he will be performing with some of the finest artists from around the world.  Bruce is also known as the world’s greatest Canadian-born, expatriate Ohio juggler living in Texas — proving he’ll go to great lengths to be the best.
