Jason D'Vaude (that's Vaude as in Vaudeville) is from Kansas City, MO. He has been performing circus stunts all over the world since 2003. Jason D'Vaude will balance on dangerous objects like rolling boards and extra tall unicycles whilst juggling axes and more. D'Vaude is also known for his exciting displays of fire-play. Expect to see some actually-good juggling, dangerous stunts, and definitely be ready to laugh.
