Chuck Bollinger is a professional entertainer of 20 years experience bringing joy and delight to audiences across the nation and around the world.
This is his story, and, believe it or not, he's proud of it. It all started at a NEW YEAR'S EVE party at the dawn of 1950 (actually around 11:45, 1949), when Sophia Bollinger turned to her husband and wistfully said, "Aaaahhhhh! I'm going into labor (which is probably better than going into ploitics)." The next day, Jan. 1, 1950, Chuck Bollinger was born, and a grateful world has been celebrating that date ever since. (No one has the heart to tell him they celebrated before 1950 as well.)
Many years later, in high school, Chuck was bitten by the Acting Bug. The school nurse dressed the wound, and told him to stay home 'till he got over it. But, NOOO! Shortly after, Chuck joined the infamous cast of the POLY FOLLIES, his school's all-male musical comedy production where men played both male and female roles. Itwas then that he formed an attachment that would last his entire life. But enough about fishnet stockings. He also got hooked on the SHOW BIZ. In later years, Chuck performed in various productions around Baltimore, and became a founding member of The Maryland Documentary
Theatre. No one could remember how it got lost, however.Even later, (close to midnight, I think)Chuck got work at THEATRE PROJECT - no pay, just work. Soon he became a full staff member, and helped develop the Baltimore Neighborhood Arts Circus, where he polished his skill as a magician, juggler, comedian, fire eater, and part time referee. It was then that Chuck and two other performers became The All American Mini Circus. Soon, they spanned the globe, bringing their special brand of humor and excitement to U.S. Servicemen abroad. More recently, Chuck has been performing his solo act for audiences on the East Coast, and is proud to have performed for both Presidents Reagan and Bush, Sr. (he only wishes Reagan were awake at the time). He hopes to also perform for Barack and Michelle, and anyone else who can help his career.
crazy Comedy Hypnotism show to his repertoire. He's been practicing hypnosis since 1987, and some day hopes to get it right. To that end he has been performing at college and for corporate functions ever since.
That's Chuck Bollinger's story
