Professional Unicyclist wtd. 4 TV Show


I was contacted by a producer of a TV show looking for a professional performing unicyclist. Below is his email. He is looking for someone in Southern California. I think that is only because he’s got no budget to fly-in people or put them up in hotels. I suggested Dustin Kelm to him, already, but he’s “out of town”. Perhaps someone that is out of town and has a gig in So Cal could time it with an appearance on the show. Send him any questions.

Contact info is in the email.


Dear Mr. Wylie,

My name is Jim Newman. I’m the director and co-producer of a show called “What’s My Line? - Live On Stage.” Our show is a re-creation of the original “What’s My Line?” TV game show from the 1950s and 60s. You can visit our website here: and you can read what the press has to say about us here:

We are looking for a professional unicyclist to appear with us in our show. You seem to have your finger on the pulse of the unicycling community in the LA area. Your area of interest seems to be using the unicycle for fitness and receation. We are looking for someone who has more of an “act” that they could demonstrate. If you have any ideas, please let me know. I can be reached at this e-mail address or at 818-841-7332. email address is jimnewman(att)earthlink(dot)net

Thanks very much for your time,
Jim Newman

Doesn’t Kaori go to school in California? I don’t know how to get in touch with her, but maybe someone on the forum does.

Also what exactly do they want, Zach is in Southern CA.

I’ll talk to Zack next time I get the chance. However, he’s quite a drive away. I’m sure John foss or Jess could talk to him too.

It’s produced by a TV producer, but not for a TV show.
It’s for a theater-show, that will run once a week (on wednesdays) untill november.
I the show the audience has to guess somebodies occupation (in this case “unicyclist”).
They are looking for just a proffesional unicyclist with experience and a prepared routine, not a top-artist, but from the LA area or near.

I’ve been in touch with the producer. Yes, it’s a live show and the budget is zero. I’m going to give him some contact info for the SB people and one or two others I can think of down there. Up here we’re 5-6 hours away by car…

Kaori is in San Francisco, not southern California.

(She showed up at one of our unicycle basketball games, and flummoxed us by jumping up to stand on the fork crown to shoot).
