Bubble Wonders is an uplifting show, full of laughs and surprises, using bubbles to inspire others to follow their dreams!

“The Perpetually Positive Pied Piper of Possibility!”
Speaking Style: Creative, Playful, Heartfelt, Authentic
If you’re looking for some new and different…look no further!
Geoff Akins-Hannah has been entertaining and educating children worldwide for over 30 years with his gentle spirit, sense of humor, and gift of rapport. Inspired by his life-altering experiences as a teacher in both Waldorf and Special Education he created the Bubble Wonders show to convey the message that “Anything is Possible!”

Bubble Wonders is guaranteed to to inspire and delight both children and adults alike. Geoff performs an amazing selection of bubble tricks including the bubble caterpillar, bubble volcano, dancing bubbles, bubbles inside of bubble, Kid in a bubble, and more. Equally important is the show’s theme—“Anything is Possible!” Throughout the show there is a running gag where Geoff attempts to create a square bubble. He intentionally fails each time in order to model persistence but by the end of the show he figures out a way to successfully make a square bubble.

In a world of ever-decreasing attention spans, Geoff uses bubbles, magic, and heartfelt stories to demonstrate that with persistence you can make your dreams come true. Geoff has presented at thousands of schools, fairs, expos, libraries and museums in ten different countries worldwide. His corporate clients include, Toyota, Macy’s, IBM, Whole Foods, Treehouse TV, The National Geographic Channel, Harley-Davidson, and Google. Bubble Wonders was highlighted on CBS Sunday Morning, the Canadian children’s television show, This is Scarlett and Isaiah, and Geoff co-authored the best-selling Empowered: Wake Up and Live the Life you Love and he's featured in two recent books, GPS for Success, and the Art and Science of Bubbles!

Cell 604-765-8836, Office 604-433-1130

I decided to leave the financial banking world in 2002  where I travel to Canada to compete in logger sports across BC.  I instantly fell in love with the country, people and the sport.  I return home, NZ,  where I sold my first lumberjack show appearance as part of the Americas Cup (yacht race) within 3 weeks of returning.

From here I covered the country with the North American styled show to great success getting noticed at an event by an Australian event organizer.  He booked me on the spot and off to Australia we went in 2008.

Several years later and travelling from the Darwin to Tasmania stopping almost everywhere in between, little Alix West Lefler was born and we decided to base ourselves back in Canada.  Now the fourth season of operating in Canada, we have been booked solid for the summer festival season with our mobile LaughingLogger services.  Our tenacious nature and relentless desire to achieve our goals and support the desires of our clients has lead us through the trees to find so much beautiful wood.  Our repeat performance rate is second to none while we establish long term relationships across the country.

We are sport passionate and it is our personal mission to bring a resurgence of logger sports back to the spot light and we are well on the way.

From the ground up, The Comedy & Juggling of Paul Isaak has been designed to bring laughs to any crowd. Starting with building an audience and the pre-show warm up, right to the Grande Finale, Isaak has constructed his show around audience participation. Every member of the crowd becomes a part of the act.

When he mounts his six-foot unicycle, everything goes wrong, but an audience member saves the day!  He challenges two brave men from the crowd to bind him for the most ridiculous escape possible - a cocoon of Saran Wrap.

Isaak's repertoire of wild stunts, intertwined with clean comedy, will elicit chuckles out of even the toughest crowds.
