Clowning, magic, acrobatics, stunts, and improvisations take the stage on Friday, April 11, at 7 p.m. when the Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech presents “Tomáš Kubínek: Certified Lunatic and Master of the Impossible.”

The event  will be held in the Anne and Ellen Fife Theatre, located within the Moss Arts Center’s Street and Davis Performance Hall at 190 Alumni Mall. 

Described as a cross between Red Skelton, Christopher Lloyd, and Victor Borge, Tomáš Kubínek is a vaudevillian performer who offers audiences an incomparable comedic experience that transcends categorization.

The Czech-born Kubínek has made appearances in over 30 countries and has a professional career spanning three decades. He has performed in theaters and opera houses, and been featured in television specials, on Broadway, and at international festivals of culture.

Kubínek recently appeared as the headline performer at the First International Congress of Fools in Moscow, played to capacity crowds in a tour across Italy, and performed a sold-out run at London’s prestigious Royal Festival Hall Purcell Theater as the featured solo artist of the London International Mime Festival.

Along with his theatrical touring, Kubínek presents a wide variety of community engagement activities. In partnership with the Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech, he will present a free matinee performance for nearly 1,000 third, fourth, and fifth graders from Montgomery, Floyd, and Roanoke Counties during his visit.

Juggler and Virginia Tech student Cyrus Pynn of Christiansburg, Va., a senior theater major, will be performing his act, “Jester’s Jubilee,” in the Moss Arts Center’s lobby from 5:45-6:45 p.m., prior to Kubínek’s performance.
