A wiggle of the finger, a raised eyebrow, or perhaps a silent game of peek-a-boo. Those are just a handful of the ways that Brad Bodary, the mechanical man performing at this year's New Jersey State Fair/Sussex County Farm and Horse Show, interacts with fairgoers without saying a word.
Bodary, otherwise known as the human mannequin, the living statue or the robot mime, has been performing for more than four decades. He said he developed an interest in his art when he was 10 years old, inspired by great entertainers like Red Skelton and Charlie Chaplin.
As a skilled circus clown and seasoned street performer, a bronze statue "The Human Mannequin", a silent clown or strolling stiltwalker, all of these zany characters are versatile enough to work virtually any location at your event. Whetaher greeting the guest at the frontentrance, drawing and holding an audience on the midway, or featured as the preshow entertainment working the crowd at grandstand and mainstage concerts and other events..
