Marcus, the Funny Man Who Does Tricks

Friday, September 1 - Monday, September 4 @ 2:00, 4:00, 6:00, & 8:00 pm


Marcus Wilson was born on April Fools day 1973, so it seems only fitting that he has a passion for jokes. This passion kept him in trouble all through elementary and Jr. high School. In ninth grade, he enrolled in a drama class and discovered a place where acting out was encouraged and accepted. He found that as long as he was on stage people seemed to enjoy his obnoxious antics. In high school, while working at a restaurant, he learned to juggle with rolls and oranges and fell in love with useless tricks and odd skills. At the age of 22, armed with a handful of these tricks and a desire to entertain, he began doing shows. About five years later, he began performing in comedy clubs. Since then, he has been making his living performing.

Lady Houdini

Shows at 2:00, 4:00, & 7:00 pm

West Events Area

Lady Houdini (Kristen Johnson) is the real deal – a real escapologist – who has carved out a great living performing her daredevil brand of escapes all over the world. She is fearless, even flirts with death, and seems to have a knack for taking an ordinary magic escape and putting her signature brand on it. Brace yourself as you watch the nail-biting Water Torture Cell escape and the Aerial Straitjacket Escape – all in full view! To learn more, check out Lady Houdini’s website
