Portrait of the Artist as a Yo-yo man

Portrait of the Artist as a Yo-yo man

An autobiographical acrobatic comedy, written and performed by David Harris, and featuring Sam Mistry. Recommended for ages 13+. 60 minutes. 

At the age of 14, David Harris knew exactly what he wanted to be, a professional yo-yo player. This dream led to a 20-year pursuit of odd hobbies; seemingly impossible stunts with folding chairs, shopping bag dancing, juggling feats, and inspired paddleball moves. Along this unexpected, hilarious, and often embarrassing journey, David finds amazing yo-yo masters, paddleball kings, and wedding rings. 

Also featured in the show is drummer Sam Mistry, a 14 year old student at the Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists.

This show was previous titled "Space Commando and other Odd Hobbies."  Although the show is the same, the story is always evolving.

"Our students were trying to mimic his paper balancing tricks for weeks afterwards. His use of props, tricks, and balance is amazing."
Rodd Isberto
"David Harris Delivers! David gives a fun, entertaining, and original show."
