Bandaloni, The One-Man-Band
(Limited Engagement October 16-20)
Roving at the Rocket 3pm - 5pm - 7pm
A favorite act of America's Got Talent! Bandaloni is an act not only of co-ordination and musical talent; it is also a test of strength. He hoists a framework of percussion onto his back, a fifty pound welded aluminum collection of drums and cymbals, rattles and a tambourine. It also contains the wireless microphones that beam the sound generated by this melding of high and low technology to a massive wooden cabinet looming just off stage.
Barney of Mayberry
Nationally-renown Barney Fife look-alike and impersonator, Scott Epperson, brings everyone’s favorite bumbling deputy to life so well you’ll swear he just stepped off the streets of Mayberry! From his lone bullet he carries in his pocket (but takes pleasure in showing) to his NIP IT IN THE BUD statements, Scott loves bringing good old Mayberry fun to crowds at the South Carolina State Fair.
Carrie McQueen - Stiltwalker
With her FIFTH visit to the SC State Fair, we are proud to present Carrie McQueen roving the grounds. This is no ordinary stiltwalker! Not only is she an elegant and glamorous ten-foot-tall Southern Belle, but she will amaze you with her juggling ability as she strolls through the Midway. Not only does Carrie wield her stilts like they are her own legs, she also juggles, dances, and creates an atmosphere of fun and excitement. She will amaze you not only with her skill but also with her colorful fashions of fun! A unique talent in the Fair community.
Denny the Clown
(Limited Engagement Oct. 9-17)
One of the best-known and most-loved entertainers at our fair is Dennis Lee (aka Denny the Clown). His love of people and the excitement he gets from entertaining is evident by the crowd he draws year after year. Loyal fans return each year to see and hear him perform.
Farmer Bob and “Johnny,” the world’s funniest tractor, will have folks rolling in laughter with his comical antics. Humor with a little history. You never know what Farmer Bob is hauling around so come find out!
Feets of Fire
World class acrobatics, amazing one-of-a-kind tricks, and a girl on fire is the recipe for an award winning show that is sure to thrill. Paz and Leah present the ancient circus art of hand to hand with their own quirky twists as they perform a number oftricks and stunts that no one else on the plant performs! Add some fire to their already unpredictable undulations and risky relationship and you have...Feets of Fire!
Jack Nicholson & Danny DeVito Impersonators
(Limited Engagement Oct. 14-20)
Jack Bullard may look like someone you recognize. Because of Jacks stunning resemblance to Jack Nicholson, he was chosen as the official impersonator by the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. He looks, acts, talks, and walks like the real thing. Can you handle it? Stu Gordon is the best and closest look alike to Danny DeVito than anyone has ever met or seen. Close in height and age to the real Danny, Stu will blow you away with his similarities.
Every fair has their entertainers, but not every fair has a 9-foot tall cartoon boy running amuck. Rollo will entertain you with his comical dances, jump ropes, shrinking himself, and he does it all on stilts! Rollo’s comedic antics will satisfy every funny bone in your body!
Dairy has never had a better friend and advocate than Billy Bob Steinberg, "The Moogician!" Incorporating dairy facts into his performances, Billy Bob juggles balls of mozzarella cheese, performs magic tricks with milk, cheese, and yogurt, and is a renowned "Cowmedian".
(Limited Engagement Oct. 11, 12, 14, 18, 19)
