Charles takes the stage with a fast paced and high energy blend of
variety comedy that makes his show truly unique. His creative vision
combines his talents as a comedian, musician, juggler and magician,
resulting in a stage show that captivates audiences all over the world.
From Off-Broadway to national TV, Todd Charles'
stage show combines backgrounds in stand-up and musical comedy, theatre,
circus arts and music. You may find him spinning a tale or a tune,
balancing a ladder or a chair on his chin, spinning plates on his Viking
helmet, or spinning a ball on the banjo, while playing it!
Accompanied by his own studio-produced soundtrack,
Todd takes you "to the Islands" for a little Jamaican Juggling
and "to the Far East" to experience the art of the Chinese
Diablo. Then, it's on to a mystery storybook land..."A land far,
far away"...inside of his musical hand-shadow theatre! There, he
performs more than a dozen hand-shadow impressions on cue, while
narrating on hilarious fictional story from beside the shadow screen!
This is a show full of sharp wit, whimsical fun, and
wonderful things like: crashing cymbals, American flags, raining
confetti, and rock and roll! With cameos by Ed Sullivan, Steven Spielberg's'
"E.T.," President Nixon, and Bart Simpson, the audience will
never know what's next! There's even a juggling rabbit and an
State of the art digital equipment allows Todd to
control all of the sound cues (inconspicuously) while performing.
Throughout the show, he enjoys treating the crowd to a bit of
"serious foot-stompin' banjo." To that he adds just the right
touch of magic and audience participation, including a sing-along and
Todd rounds out the show with his own hearty rendition
of "Dueling Banjos," in which he duels with the audience, a
burping baby, and barn-yard animals that sing on cue and zoom around his
head on a spinning helmet, leaving the audience roaring with
