Award-Winning Prop Comics

The Moisture Festival brings the best in variete and comedy to Seattle every spring, so it's really no surprise that many of our artists have a collection of awards and records. This year, you have the ability to see not just one but TWO performers who have been awarded Seattle's Best Prop Comedian. They both hold Guinness World Records, too! Who said being funny doesn't get you places?!

Alex Zerbe is back this year, full of hilarious antics and boundless energy. From juggling to dancing to magic and singing, you never know quite what The Zaniac will do next! Alex has performed in seventeen different countries, bringing laughter as his co-pilot. On top of his two Guinness World Records and Seattle's Best Prop Comic, Alex has also been honored as Hacky Sack World Champion and Seattle's 3rd Best Air Guitarist. He really sees the audience as part of the show, so if you're lucky, you just might get to be a part of his act! You may have seen him on "America's Got Talent" or "Last Comic Standing", but seeing him up close and personal on stage at the Palladium will be a real treat. Get ready to laugh, and bring the whole family to one of these shows!

Matt Baker was also once awarded Seattle's Best Prop Comedian. His comedy stunt show has been to various countries, on cruise ships, and a number of festivals. You may have seen him on "America's Got Talent", "Last Comic Standing", and "Tosh.0". If you're a world traveler, you may have also seen him on a live television show in Shanghai! Matt first started touring the world at the age of 17 with the first-ever international hacky sack team, and from there developed his repertoire through street performance. Matt holds five Guinness World Records, including one for Most Complete Changeovers Juggling Three Objects in One Minute. This is known as "leaping", and Matt, along with Joe Ricci, performed this feat on New Year's Day in Japan. To see what stunts Matt brings to the Moisture stage this year, make sure to get your tickets to one of these shows!
