“A cerebral romp through what makes us human!”

“Legendary performance artist!”

“Human Oxymoron!”

At birth, doctors wondered if Harley Newman would survive. They still do.

In his evolution from circus clown to something else, he has pushed the boundaries of stunt, and is the only person ever to be recognized with Lifetime Achievement awards for performance in both sideshow and escapes.

Harley pushes limits. He walks barefoot on sharp swords, dances in broken glass, and clears his sinuses with a high-heeled shoe! He swallows swords, uses his tongue to stop fans and pick locks, and escapes from a straitjacket while riding a unicycle!

His television appearances include The Today Show, The Tonight Show, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, and Penn & Teller’s Sin City Spectacular, and have been viewed by approximately a billion people.

Harley has repeatedly taken his unique art form to ever further extremes, entering into territories thought to be impossible. He was rejected by the Guinness Book of Records as “too dangerous to publish”.

Join Harley on the knife’s edge bridge between the universe inside his head and the world outside. Each step leaves you wondering what could possibly happen next!

This show is presented as part of Single Carrot Theatre’s Second Series

Tickets: $15 or $10 students, artists and wizards

On Saturday, March 16th at 7PM, join Harley for an Escape Workshop at Denny & Lee Magic Studio in Rosedale, Maryland!

Harley will present an interactive three-hour workshop on the Basics of Escape. You will be restrained with ropes, chains, and straitjackets, and then get out! We’ll extensively discuss psychology, physicality, and showmanship, creating presentations that maximize your effect on an audience.
