Fred Garbo & His Inflatable Theatre
Fred Garbo has been a professional performer since 1974.
On Sesame Street, he was the acrobat inside Barkley the Dog. On Broadway, he was the chief juggler in the musical Barnum. He toured Europe, Hong Kong and Australia with the Obie Award-winning Foolsfire, with Bob Berky and Michael Moschen.
Whether tumbling for the New York City Opera at Lincoln Center or dancing with MOMIX in Brazil, Fred brings a gymnast’s timing and an actor’s presence to his Inflatable Theater Co.
Most recently featured on David Letterman’s Late Night, Fred Garbo continues to astound and tickle audiences with his pop-action inflatables and hilarious stage presence.
For the last 16 years he has been inventing inflatables with artist/builder George York, and touring them with his partner Daielma Santos. Fred has trained and performed with the Master of Illusion: Tony Montanaro. (Fred also “trains” in snowboarding every chance he gets.)
