Brian Wendling is a whirlwind of fun, using award-winning juggling and high energy antics to capture an audience’s heart. An International Jugglers’ Association team champion (with Scott Burton), Wendling has been a fan favorite at the Kansas City Renaissance Faire for almost forty years (where he has won Best Stage Performer numerous times). Wendling has brought his stage shows to every conceivable audience from the biggest to the smallest group.
Long running sponsors include the Kansas City Renaissance Festival (38 years), Dickens On The Strand in Galveston, Texas (30 years), the humanities series for Coffeyville Community College (30 years), and the Oklahoma Renaissance Festival (22 years).
Wendling started as a shy college student who found juggling and performing as a way to cultivate his extroverted side. The discovery of learning a new prop or weaving his way into the hearts of an audience give him great pleasure.
As one newspaper quote noted: “Give the skinny fellow three or more objects and he’ll juggle them. Add three or more spectators and he’ll make you wonder whether he’s juggling the objects or the people. Actually, he’s doing both.”
Wendling will perform on the Coffeyville Community College campus on Tuesday, September 11, as part of the CCC Humanities Project. The public is invited to the 10:30 a.m. Tuesday humanities performances at CCC. The performances are free and held in the Spencer/Rounds Performing Arts Theatre.
