Ripley's Believe It or Not
and many others
Voted an AOL TOP TV Moment
"Brad Weston is a big event all by himself!"
Brad's amazing and hilarious act is a theatrical thrill ride... on a unicycle... in a straight jacket! Clean, fast paced, and full of surprises, this show from Chicago is as much like watching a magic show as it is like seeing a juggler. See what everyone is talking about!
