This Week's Episode...
Fresh from the grand stages of Cirque du Soleil and touring the world as P!NK‘s concert host, Jimmy Slonina is an award-winning actor, physical comedian, and performance creator — "a precision loose cannon with a heart of gold."
Jimmy can currently be seen as "Brian Le Petit" in Cirque du Soleil's Mystère at Treasure Island in Las Vegas
With over four million YouTube hits under his belt, he has become one of the most sought-after variety character performers of the stage and screen.
Jimmy has wowed hundreds of thousands in theaters big and small, including the Slipper Room, Barclays Center, and Madison Square Garden in NYC, Steppenwolf Theater and Chicago Shakespeare Theatre in Chicago, the O2 in London, the Friedrichstadt-Palast in Berlin, the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia, as well as more than a dozen Las Vegas showrooms. He has appeared in several critically-acclaimed films, commercials and videos.
Johnny is an actor and musician, whose love for performing began at an early age. As a young lad, Johnny discovered he could get out of trouble by making his mom laugh, and his career has come full circle; he is currently "Moha Semedi" (The Pink Guy) in Mystère by Cirque du Soleil, at Treasure Island on the fabulous Las Vegas Strip.
Johnny’s path eventually headed west, and he now finds himself a permanent resident of Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition to Mystère, Johnny spent 8 years clowning in Le Reve the Dream, and has performed with Piff the Magic Dragon, OK OK Variety show, 1230 Clown Show, and the Composer’s Showcase at The Smith Center. Some major recent rolls include Oberon/Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Brendan Doyle in The Anubis Gates, and Guildenstern in Hamlet.
RJ Owens is…in no particular order, an actor, director, magician and clown.
RJ moved to Las Vegas 10 years ago to join the cast of Mystère by Cirque du Soleil at Treasure Island. RJ can be seen performing as the iconic "Bebè François" in this longest running Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas.
Born on the Central Coast of California to a School Principal and a Prison Matron (these are two separate people but the confusion is understandable) proved to be the single-most dullest experience in RJ’s life. At 12 RJ started a life-long passion; Theater. RJ was mostly behind the scenes as a technician and stagehand until one fateful day when a director of one of the shows shouted out…”who’s the fat kid”? “Gimme the FAT KID”! The rest is as they say: History.
As for RJ’s future…who knows? In the words of his grandmother, “Hell…you’re 52, how much future do you have left”?
