The Checkboard Guy, David Aiken – How to be a Well-Rounded Performer

David Aiken is known worldwide as The Checkerboard Guy: An infectious bundle of energy wrapped by a dynamite skill set that consistently generates guffaws from spectators.

He’s part juggler, part unicyclist, but all comic daredevil extraordinaire!

He’s performed on Cruise Ships, in the Festival Circuit, on Big Stages and much, much more.

On today’s show David answers the age-old questions….

How is David like Evil Knievel?

How do Bees keep warm in the winter?

How does a Busker perform for the back rows?

How much alcohol is in a standard IPA beer?

What famous entertainers have a beer named after them?

How do I become a Superstar Performer?
