About the show:
Are you planning an event and are uncertain how to entertain a large swath of sensibiliites? Are you looking for that warmth and fun for your employees at their next function? Perhaps you have concern that some comedians use material that more sensitive ears could object to?
Rich really sets his crowds on fire -- in a good way! Whether perched atop a tall unicycle or flinging around knives and plungers, Rich is offbeat and off-balance with such style that his crowds always leave with a laugh!
On his Late Night television show, David Letterman called him, "Really something."
Rich's powerful performance fills the stage with amazing skill, hard-hitting comedy and spontaneity, while keeping it clean as a whistle. Since touring with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Rich has been blowing away audiences -- in a good way -- all over the world. He's been spotted at festivals, amusement parks, on TV on 3 continents, and even at the U.S. Vice Presidential Mansion! Book him now to see why he was rated a perfect "10" (on the Richter scale).
Rich has spent a number of years traveling with his one-man comedy juggling show, across Europe and Asia, inciting hilarity in 5 languages (English, Spanish, French, German and Japanese). He is now ready to help make your event a success!
-- Paul Shaffer, The Late Show With David Letterman
"Fantastic juggling! Many, many thanks!"
-- Tipper Gore
