Last year's winner of the Iron Chicken – The Press' Critics Choice Award for 'Best National Artist' returns to the WORLD BUSKERS FESTIVAL for another solo hour of comedy and ninja-ry. A circuit regular and headline act in the UK, Javier Jarquin returns to his hometown after performing in comedy clubs, cabarets, festivals and television appearances in 12 different countries.
As a stand up comedian Jarquin draws on slick observations, as a variety artist he works the crowd with his renowned CARD NINJA act. Combining both he produces a show displaying killer wit, fight-of-hand techniques and ordinary playing cards used as weapons of mass destruction and distraction.
Part comedy. Part variety. All Ninja.
