Royal Gazette profiles juggler and performer McCoy ’03
The Royal Gazette of Bermuda explores the world of juggler and comic Brent McCoy ’03 by visiting his show at Faneuil Hall.
Reporter Wendy Davis Johnson writes:
“The delight McCoy gets from street performing and his comfort with his audience are clear. His effervescent personality and adroit physical comedy prompt easy laughter and steady applause.”
McCoy, who majored in studio art at Bates, tells Johnson that “if you gave me a choice between doing two of these shows and a regular paycheck, I wouldn’t think twice. It’s all about the joy.”
McCoy’s show, Comedy That Works, has been among just 13 acts approved to perform in the open air spaces at Faneuil Hall this summer. “Performers come from around the world to try and get a space here,” he tells Johnson.
