The Butterfly Encounter

What People Say About The Butterfly Encounter
The Butterfly Encounter, a screened-in butterfly exhibit, brought in about 1500 people each day of the fair.
“A lot of people,” said owner Deborah Lurie.
Three different species of butterflies, 350 total were on display, and fair-goers had the opportunity to observe and feed them nectar, at no charge. The Butterfly Encounter even gives away caterpillars to kids “so they get to see the whole transformation,” Lurie said.
This was The Butterfly Encounter’s first year at the local fair.
“We’re are come back next year. We’re loving it here,” said Lurie, from Florida, who runs the traveling business with her family. “The people are incredible. The weather is gorgeous. Everything about it.”

Joe Stoddard

Most entertainers write these corny biographies themselves.

They search desperately back in time, exaggerating their accomplishments in an effort to convince you that they are the most talented and the perfect one to fulfill your entertainment needs.

Personally, I refuse to draw attention to the fact that I have worked with such greats as: The Beach Boys, Ricky Nelson, Rich Little, The Oakridge Boys, Keith Urban and many others

Having performed with people like: Clay Walker, Jan and Dean, Jim Stafford, BJ Thomas and many, many others is unnecessary information and need not be considered.

What possible good would come from my bragging about the fact that I have been performing for more than twenty years at literally hundreds of functions, including (but not limited to) Conventions, Dinner Shows, Comedy Clubs, Colleges, State and County Fairs, Festivals, Ski Resorts, Cruise Ships and every other type of engagement you could possibly imagine!

So let me not lose my dignity by patting myself on the back as so many others do. I will simply state honestly and modestly that, as your choice for entertainment I WILL MAKE YOU A HERO IN THE EYES OF YOUR FRIENDS, PEERS, PATRONS AND COUNTRYMEN!

Matt Henry

Trained Human/Big Bubble Show

Matt Henry, the "master of the unnecessary," has some serious skills--he won a world juggling championship--but it's his combination of one-of-a-kind stunts, humor, and audience participation that keep him in demand around the world.

He started out busking on the streets of Manhattan, and later moved to Orlando, honing his skills with thousands of shows onstage at Disney World. He continued to expand his technical repertoire as well; his hard work was rewarded in 2001 when he bested dozens of other world-class competitors to win a World Juggling Championship.

Laugh-a-minute is too slow a pace at this show, don't miss it!

Being an entertainer since the age of 5, I took to Ventriloquism as a duck takes to water. My American Dad and Colombian Mom loved the arts and being on stage. I grew up on the stage with great inspirations like Topo Gigio and Shari Lewis.

I have been honored to perform my one woman magical ventriloquism show in English and Spanish for Corporations, fairs, festivals, school assemblies and libraries entertaining audiences all across the United States, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom.
