Strolling: Pantomime strolling involves a lot of the oldies but goodies. Walk invisible dogs, walk against the wind, walk tightrope, swim, pose as a statue, get trapped in glass rooms, climb the sidewalk, sit down and have a drink (no chair or glass), ride invisible bikes, do cartwheels and handsprings, fall in love with passing strangers, and many other things. Bret will play with and interact with people, but does not provoke or mock them. And he is particularly good at being a monkey: walking, climbing, rolling around like a chimp.

Stage Show: 30-40 minutes. Skits with storylines and a theme. His show is great for families and audiences of all ages because they seem to share with each other what they understand. Bret's act is fun and energetic. He has a precise mime technique that creates a strong illusion and he combines it with gymnastics and shtick. And of course Bret never speaks when wearing mime make up, not at all!


Strolling: $200/hr with a two hour minimum.

Stage Show: $280 for the show description outlined above.*
