Skilled funnyman and juggler extraordinaire is not a combo you come across so often.
However, if you are here, it means you are a successful event planner since you are about to meet Max Winfrey.
With over 25 years of comedy and improvising experience, he is bound to devise some of the hilarious on-stage situations people can witness.
Add to that mad juggling skills, and you pretty much get the perfect recipe to get your guests rolling with laughter.
How Did Max Become One of the Best in the Industry?
The back story is this: having tried his hand at juggling for a while, Max Winfrey started working in theme parks since the age of 16, thus mastering the art of interacting with virtually any kind of public.
By the age of 21, he was already providing entertainment and juggling tricks on the “street” of Walt Disney World.
That is how he honed his dexterity and performance ability which would make him notorious in the corporate entertainment world afterward.
A semi-finalist on the hit NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” he recalls his time on the show as a challenge. He had to abide by the rules of televised setup, which wasn’t the easiest of things for an innate creative spirit like him.
Albeit the difficulties, he won the hearts of many and valuable experience performing for millions of viewers.
Max Winfrey, Stunt Comedy, and Top-Notch Events
The above notions are tightly related since Max coined his entertainment niche called stunt comedy.
He is performing it in different environments:
- Corporate Shows
- Corporate Dinners.
Getting to the point, stunt comedy employs circus skills and tricks jazzed up with improvisation:
- knife throwing.
Max’s act relies on the audience reaction. If he sees your guests are reacting more to a particular stunt, he will come up with some pretty impressive additions on the spot.
This kind of improvisational stunt comedy is a must-have for an event planner who wants:
- fresh and unique content for their guests
- customized gigs
- a certain message to be conveyed in the most original of manners
- to keep an audience on the edge of their seats – for real!
- the audience to be engaged 100% and also involved in the show.
Why Should You Book Max
Max uses humor as a medium for Christian ministry, so you can employ him for church events and rest assured you get an explosively entertaining gig with no improper content.
He even professes his credo in words like:
“Now I perform in churches, and it is a real testimony, outreach to re-introduced the church through laughter. Help people have a good time and send the message to get back to their faith or start a relationship with Christ for the first time.”
Max is part of a select group of standup comedians, like Darren Streblow (in whose radio show he is featured) or Etta Mae Mumphries.
At Grable Group, we commend Max Winfrey for the way he manages to juggle his way to any audience’s heart. Having said that, make sure you book the performer whose catchphrase is:
“I believe in laughter…it’s good for the soul.”
