A unique andc harming comedy show for all ages, Avner combines magic, acrobatics, pickpocketing, balancing and juggling impossible objects to take us on a hilarious ride through new vaudeville, Jerry Lewis and Groucho Marx. His comedy is highly skillled and precise, yet he maintains the ability to trespond spontaneusly at any given moment. Avner has been touring to great acclaim in the US and Great Britain for many years. He has also performed on Broadway, but is probably best known for his role as the holy man in the film Jewel in the Nile.

"...it would take a dedicated sour-face of any age to resist him...a joy to watch" THE INDEPENDENT "Hilarious... he eats a pancake stack of napkins with the delicacy of Chaplin savouring his boot in 'The Gold Rush'. Manic tomfoolery. The fun is contagious! Inventive, lovable...a connoisseur of laughter" Mel Gussow THE NEW YORK TIMES "...one of the funniest things in Edinburgh... the only people who would not enjoy this show are those without a sense of humour" THE SCOTSMAN
