Get ready to be amazed and humored by this year’s street performer, Dan Raspyni, a comedy juggler who expertly combines the art of juggling and balancing stunts with clever and clean comedy. Raspyni will be performing at this year’s Festival of the Arts, 3 times each day from April 21-26.

Raspyni has an incredible amount of experience entertaining people professionally for over 25 years. He has worked all over the world as a solo performer and as one half of the famous Raspyni Brothers comedy juggling team. He has performed at corporate events for Apple, American Express, McDonalds, and other corporations, as well as events such as the Academy Awards and TED conference. He has also won several awards, which include two Guinness book world records.

“We are so excited to have Dan Raspyni as our street performer for this year’s Festival of the Arts! Having opened for the likes of Robin Williams and Billy Crystal, it’s no surprise to me that his act as a comedy juggler is so hugely in demand,” said Katelyn Carter, Projects Director. “Fortunately, he was able to fit us in between two international tours and we are so pleased to welcome him for his first time performing in Oklahoma City.”

Raspyni’s stunts, humor, and ability to customize comedy material are known to wow any crowd. As he pushes the juggling art form to its edge, audiences will be in awe at his inspiring imagination and skill.

The 2015 Festival of the Arts, presented by Chesapeake Energy Corporation and Devon Energy Corporation, will take place April 21-26 in Downtown Oklahoma City at the Festival Plaza and the Myriad Botanical Gardens. The festival runs 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free. Pets are not allowed.
