Peter Geist bills himself as a 12-year-old trapped in the body of a 36-year-old man. He has been performing his one-man show for 17 years and has been featured at the International Children’s Festival in Virginia, the National Theatre’s Family Series in Washington, DC, and the Goodwill Games in New York, among other venues throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.
Known professionally as Geist, Peter uses magic, pantomime, juggling and physical comedy to create his shows, and performs 150-200 shows a year. He also relies heavily on audience participation in his shows, and will often bring people up on stage with him.
In addition to his stage shows, Geist performs as The Wacky Waiter, a buffoonish waiter who interrupts a corporate dinner or event with his antics. This is particularly popular in corporate settings.
Geist lives in Lancaster Pennsylvania with his wife, where he is on the Pennsylvania Artists On Tour List.
