Bob Cates Bio
Experience the Amazingly Funny world of Comedy in Motion with Canada’s favourite juggler, Bob Cates. This memorable interactive comedy show includes advanced juggling, wild unicycling and balancing skills, Chinese Yo Yo and cigar box manipulation, illusion, slapstick, black light laser effects and an insane “Ed Sullivan style” plate spinning finale that you will remember for a long long time. Bob Cates, a Canadian Juggling Champion, physical comedian and new vaudevillian comes from humble roots as a pig farmer’s son. He was ecstatic to be nominated this year for Best Variety Act at the 2014 Canadian Comedy Awards, in addition to being nominated two years in a row for Best One Man Show.
Bob, a resident of Cambridge Ontario was twice awarded Best Entertainer of the Year at the Molson Canadian F.E.O. Awards. He has also been nominated for Best Entertainer of the Year four times at the Canadian Event Industry Awards and won the Most Difficult Trick Award at the RIT New York Juggling Festival. He has been a special guest performer at the Israeli Juggling Convention and is considered a top clean comic, performing regularly at large churches and National Youth Conventions in the United States and Canada.
The Comedy in Motion show is much more than a stand up routine, and involves a great deal of physical skill which has taken years to hone. He is one of few performers left in North America performing authentic plate spinning – his signature piece. Overall, the show is very fast paced, highly interactive and uses situational comedy and advanced skills to keep audience members of all ages on the edge of their seats right to the very end. Don’t miss this show!
