From San Francisco, Frank has generously contributed his outrageous juggling talents to the success of the festival for 8 out of 10 years and we're thrilled to have him as part of our Moulin to Moisture show. He has shared the bill with Dana Carvey, Robin Williams and Whoopi Goldberg. He performed his act for three years on Broadway in the hit show 'Sugar Babies'. His television appearances have included The Tonight Show, Comic Strip Live, and shows for PBS, HBO, BBC and Disney.
Our MC and Auctioneer for the evening, Kevin Joyce, has established himself as one of the most versatile and prolific creative artists in the Pacific Northwest. Among his many artistic accomplishments are creating and starring in the award-winning one-man show A Pale and Lovely Place, co-founding the acclaimed UMO Ensemble and serving as a principal performer and Director of Teatro ZinZanni.
