Mike Hirschbach, a former clown with the Cirque du Soleil, brings to life the story of his mentor, his eccentric Uncle Podger.
The Daily News gushed that Uncle Podger’s Hat is, “a wonderful vehicle for this versatile and charming performer. He juggles, he plays the musical saw, he can ride a unicycle. With a rubber face made to bring on laughter, Hirschbach endears us to Uncle Podger, a clumsy old man who may not be able to hang a picture without inciting disaster, but who can balance a peacock feather on his chin or play two flutes at once.”
The Chronicle Herald said, “Hirschbach has created a sophisticated, beautifully structured show that combines his skills at juggling, unicycling and physical comedy with story. Hirschbach is at the peak of his powers in this finely crafted piece of work."
