The Chairmen, Master Payne, Scot Nery, The Quidldlers, and Robet Lok

I think we can pack a few more clowns into this car! We'd like to welcome to the Festival for the first time:

UPDATED 1/27: Unfortunately, the Chairmen will not be able to attend this year, but we hope to bring them to a future festival.
The Chairmen
are James O'Shea and Bob Palmer of the very popular comedy juggling duo Flying Debris. These are two obsessed individuals dedicated to exploring and expanding the world's perception of those white plastic stacking resin patio chairs that are found everywhere on the planet. Their extremely funny, extremely weird antics will cause you to jump out of your seats in amazement. We can't wait to bring this this chair-raising experience to the Moisture Festival. Website.

Master Payne, purveyor of thematic thaumaturgy, is a noted Northwest performer who has traveled the world assuming and shedding a series of characters and in an unending effort to give a new twist to ancient arts. His is a respected voice in the world of magic and we're proud to have him, for the first time, on our Moisture Festival stage. Website.

Scot Nery's unique and acclaimed performances combine his one-of-a-kind personality and newfangled object manipulation. Every show is a refreshing splash of unexpected ingenuity. Whether Scot is working in theater, at a party or on the small or large screen he regards each performance as an opportunity to apply “unexpected ingenuity”. He's noted for his comic daring and his carefree stage presence. We're looking forward to this first time Moisture Festival appearance by this fearless LA performer. Website.

The Quiddlers' Micro Jackson and other comic characters will blow you away. These International Ambassadors of Physical Comedy started out in the mid-1980s as The Marauding Miners and they are still going strong with worldwide performances of their unique costumes, puppetry and comedy. This is their first Moisture Festival and Seattlites are in for a treat. Short, sweet and hilarious.

Rob Lok is an international variety performer and contemporary clown. An unpredictable combination of slapstick comedy and high-octane circus skills has made his shows in demand around the globe. Since receiving his BFA (Bachelor of Funny Arts) at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, Robert has spent over a decade traveling the world and performing his unique style of contemporary clowning and physical comedy. We look forward to welcoming him to the Moisture Festival. Website.
