This is the story of a man who has something to say, but can't quite get it out.
Legendary Canadian performer Jamie Adkins (Cirque du Soleil soloist, and Montréal’s Cirque Éloize) is mustering the courage to face what he fears most: speaking in public.
To overcome his fear he's going to need to get creative! Right side up and upside down, Jamie finds the magic hidden in just about anything. Balancing precariously on towering ladders, wrangling an animated chair and juggling anything he can find are all part of his unusual solution.
With astonishing acrobatic skills, sidesplitting wit and an imaginative story about never giving up, this brilliant sequence of choreographed mayhem is an international hit that will have you captivated and a little speechless yourself.

Adkins hasn't reinvented juggling or clowning, he's just made them more interesting to watch through the powers of personality and grace. The Daily Gazzette New York, NY
