The hardest choice for an event is usually the entertainment. However, if you are hosting an event, you already have a great option: Max Winfrey, the Comedian-Stuntman.
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.
His acts incorporate the fun of acrobatics and the suspense of knife throwing and a dash of comedy. It is a great option for a varied audience, as he has aspects which appeal to different groups.
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.
What makes Max Winfrey the best option for your event?
The first reason is he has been in the industry for some time, 25 years to be exact. Moreover, this makes him not just a pro at improv comedy, but also an expert at creating the most laughable situations you have ever seen.
At first, Max Winfrey worked as a park theme performer in places like Walk Disney World Florida. Working on his act, he realized he became not just a juggler or a stunt man, but an interactive performer.
He then carried on to sharing his gift on stages across the globe. In 2010, he became a semi-finalist on the hit NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” Here’s a glimpse of his performance:
The second reason is that he is wanted by so many large corporations for their events. He has become the go-to guy for Leading Cruise Lines when they need Headline Entertainment for their event.
Max Winfrey is also experienced in different types of events. From television to live shows and even after dinner entertainment. There have been events where he has been a one-man comedy performance or even a speaker.
That is why many of the top Fortune 500 companies have come to rely on his reputation for delivering that knockout punch to their events.
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.
What can you expect for your Event?
If you are asking yourself how your Event will go with this performer, here’s an overview. You will get long-lasting live entertainment which will include:
- Balancing and equilibristic moments
- Knife throwing
- Juggling tennis rackets and more
- Clean Comedy
- Interactive engagement with the audience
That is why Max Winfrey is the best option for your event. Regardless of your audience’s age, he will create a great atmosphere everyone will enjoy.
He will incorporate audience members in his acts from kids to seniors. All to make the moment more enjoyable.
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.
Is He the Right Entertainer for You?
In most cases, the answer is yes. Especially if you are organizing an event and you are searching for one of these:
- Unique performance for your guests
- Presenting a message in an original way
- Keep an audience at the edge of their seat
- Customized gigs
- Volunteers involved in the live performance
- Moreover, a great laugh.
Max Winfrey is the guy to offer a great show for your varied audience.
Here’s what Dave Bowering, who has hired him for his event, had to say:
“There are very few comedians I believe offer good clean fun. Max is at the top of the list! While most comedians require music and special effects, Max just appears on the stage and within minutes has everyone splitting their sides with laughter.”
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.”
