A new dimension in family-friendly entertainment is in the works when Rockefeller Arts Center welcomes acclaimed comedian and juggler Mark Nizer to Marvel Theatre.

“Mark Nizer - 4D... a New Dimension in Entertainment” takes place on Friday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. in Marvel Theatre as part of the 2021-22 Kaleidoscope Family Series sponsored by The Observer and The Post-Journal.

Billed as “only live 4D show in the world,”  Nizer takes audiences into a dimension of laser light and technology. The phrase “Nothing Less Than Brilliant” (Performance Magazine) has been used to describe the outrageous comedy and expertly crafted feats of Nizer.

It is a family-friendly event is perfect for all ages 6 and up.

Tickets are available through the Fredonia Campus Ticket Office in the Williams Center, by phone at 716-673-3501 or online.

Audience members are encouraged to bring their smart phones as they will be part of the show as Nizer takes them over and uses them to light up the theater. Unique 4D glasses will be distributed out before the show. The glasses allow audiences to experience a new 4D world of lasers, music and a popping depth of color.

Nizer, who last appeared at Rockefeller Arts Center in 2010, is considered one of the greatest entertainment comedians and jugglers performing today. His wild exploits have landed him on MTV, HBO’s “Just for Laughs” and more. He has opened for Jerry Seinfeld, Bob Hope, George Burns, John Byner, Gladys Knight, The Temptations, Johnny Mathis, Ray Charles, and Barry Manilow.

Working under the theme of making the impossible possible and the improbable probable, Nizer has taken his one-man show to a variety of venues around the world, including The Improv, The Comedy Store, Walt Disney World, numerous college campuses, and all major cruise lines.

He has also performed in thousands of opera houses, civic centers, festivals and performing arts centers including the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (three times).

Entertainment Magazine states, “Without a doubt the hottest juggler on the entertainment market, Mark Nizer is simply incredible.”

Nizer’s combination of original comedy, world class juggling, movement, music and technology create a spellbinding evening. Whether juggling laser beams at 1,000 RPMs or five ping pong balls being thrown 20 feet in the  air using only his mouth or even juggling a burning propane tank, a running electric carving knife and a 16-pound bowling ball, you’ll discover for yourself that Nizer is  and The really “the juggler your mother warned you about.”

The Kaleidoscope Family Series sponsored by The Observer and Post-Journal is part of the 2021-22 Lake Shore Savings Season.
