The Moisture Festival Podcast is pleased to have the multi talented Mark Hayward join us over the phone. Mark is a smorgasbord of quirky talents. He is a world champion yo yo player, a Guinness World Record Holder, Artist and self proclaimed “Cool Guy”. In our conversation we discuss his progression from playing yo-yo as a kid and how that took him all around the globe including appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman (twice) and being a featured speaker at Ted X. We also learn about the spinning top, the world of juggling and get into a complex discussion on cheese. A great conversation with one of our favorite performers in the world.
Once a month my buddy Matt Baker and I put on a variety show on Zoom. The show is at 5pm (pst) today! We host the show and bring in three amazing acts. This month we have:
- Trevor and Lorena Watters – FISM North American Comedy Magic Award Winners!
- Mark Hayward – Yo Yo Champion
- Eric Haines– One Man Band
Here’s what went down last month:
Tickets for tonight’s show are $7 and available at www.oddandoffbeat.com/tickets
On Thursday (5/28) my buddy Matt Baker and I will be hosting the Odd and Offbeat Variety Show. We’ve got some fun acts and all will be performing live and we’ll do a Q&A with the acts after they perform.
I think this is a great format for a virtual show, you get a lot of acts and it’s done live. Check it out on Thursday!
