After a few years with the Kansas City based Mimewock Company, Richard struck out on his own as a company of one. That quickly grew as he discovered he had a lot of characters in his own head waiting to get out.

My award winning juggling, family humor and audience antics are appropriate for all ages, including the adults! My 2023 summer reading program is: One Big Juggling Family! Brian Wendling reminds himself, and his audiences, that his program takes EVERYONE coming together to have a fun, high energy time with award winning juggling and audience antics! Here's to all of us! My fee for a 45-55 minute program has a $250 base fee, with mileage added on if out of the immediate Kansas City area. Scheduling multiple libraries on consecutive days is one way to lower the cost for all of the libraries involved. Lodging may be added on for multiple day bookings, but many times this is much less than the mileage involved for said bookings. For several libraries scheduled on the same day, I prefer to structure travel so that I can arrive 45 mns before the performance start time for each library, in order to load in and set up before the patrons arrive to settle in. I can accommodate any library setting, but always appreciate having some space to use my bigger props. But any setting can work!
