Special Act: Trapeze Duo
Oliver Parkinson is somehow lucky enough to be paid to hang upside down. He's had the pleasure of performing all over the North America and Europe in front of such luminaries as President and Mrs. Obama as well as noted idiot Piers Morgan. Oliver has had the unbelievable good fortune to partner with the incomparable Megan Stockman for the past 2 years to develop a trapeze duet that combines athletic power with artistic elegance. She has also helped him work through his crippling addiction to dried mango. He is a former rugby player and mixed-martial arts champion and has a PhD in medicinal chemistry.
