An Interactive Theatrical Ambient Entertainer: Comedy Magic, Stilt Walking, Nouveau Clown & Mime, Fire Breather & Buffoon
With lineage to Theodor 'Dr. Seuss' Geisel, and a munchkin of the "Lollipop Guild" from the classic film 'The Wizard Of Oz', it's safe to say eccentricity, peculiarity, and a bit of whimsy run through my veins!
Thanks to a wonderfully supportive mother who nurtured my pursuit in the world of arts, I submersed myself in various forms of visual art, music, theater, dance, puppetry, and comedy.
In my late teens, I attended the Center For Creative Youth at Wesleyan University, which helped to expand my creativity thus graduating high school the following year, voted 'Class Artist' thus continuing my artistic path into college obtaining a degree in Visual Communications.
During my educational art journey in the early 90s, I landed employment in the Seattle music industry as the "Grunge" scene began to explode worldwide. 18 years afterward, in the spring of 1999, I discovered my love for circus arts and a passion for costume designing, character development, skit writing, creature fabrication, makeup application, stilt walking, theatrical magic, and nouveau clown.
7 years later, Cirque Du Soleil's talent scouts hunted me down with an invitation to audition for physical clown. 14 other performers from around the world were hand-selected to audition, only 3 of us were actually from Seattle. I feel that amazing experience became my baptismal in the entertainment waters, with Cirque eventually contracting me to provide promotional performances for their shows KOOZA & KURIOS.
Since then I've dedicated over 20 years of my life providing an enjoyable caliber of entertainment to audiences of all types. My wit is quick, my humor is sharp, and my jokes are original!
My goal is getting people to pause for a moment no matter how brief, and take in a breath of laughter or a twinkling of astonishment.
I'm a creative soul who loves method acting, physical movement, circus arts, and comedy. Decades of performance experience provide me with an exceptionally skilled foundation entertainment as a professional magician, stilt walker, fire performance, nouveau clown, modern mime, living statuary, and professional buffoonery to delight audiences of all ages.
With proper budgeting and advanced notice, I can specialize in a client's creative vision customizing my performances, costumes, and characters bringing those imaginative ideas to life.
You might have seen me without knowing it's me because chances are I was in costume and makeup portraying a character for entertainment purposes.
In over 2 decades, my talents and skills have been featured in movies, TV shows, music videos, commercials, animated features, theatrical productions, concerts, festivals, fairs, special engagements, celebrations, and various events across the U.S.
I can provide large or intimate performances, staged shows, scripted pieces, and theatrical interactive ambiance for entertaining a cornucopia of audiences at corporate functions, business promotions, charitable organizations, theaters, museums, art galleries, and school events.

I'd post a list of my past and present clients, but honestly, it's large enough to choke a hippo.
Listen to what PostMaster Frank has to say about me in the video here.
"Described as one of Seattle's "Best Kept Secrets" few people can call themselves a fountain of creativity, but performance artist Sage Viniconis literally spews ideas, philosophies, and ruminations with almost every breath he takes."
-Tiffany Wan, Seattle Weekly
"It's best to not ask Sage what type of art he does, but what type of art he doesn't do."
~Greg Lundgren, Vital 5 Productions.
"I laughed so hard I peed a little."
