BPL@Night Presents Liang Acrobatic & Comedy Show
The January edition of BPL@Night will feature the Liang Acrobatic & Comedy Show. Liang, one of China's greatest acrobatic talents, is a native of Wuhan, China. She began studying dance, gymnastics, and acrobatics at the age of 4 with the world-renown Wuhan Acrobatic Troupe. Liang traveled the world with this group to venues in France, Germany, Switzerland, Israel, Indonesia, South Korea, and Malaysia. She was awarded two gold medals for excellence in international acrobatic competition in Paris and her native China.
After arriving in the USA, she was immediately cast in a Justin Timberlake 'N Sync video. That video was shown on HBO as part of 'N Sync's live concert from New York's Madison Square Garden. Liang has also headlined at the House of Blues, appeared on MTV, ABC, NBC, FOX-TV, and performed at many NBA games. Most recently Liang has starred on NBC's #1 hit show, America's Got Talent and appeared on The Today Show.
Liang loves to travel and perform with her husband, Bill. Together they've been seen in hundreds of shows nationwide. In the future Liang hopes to continue doing what she does best—meeting people and thrilling audiences everywhere with her incredible acrobatic feats.
MC/comedian Bill Patti began his long show business career on radio and TV as an announcer. More recently he has performed as a voice-over talent on hundreds of commercials and videos nationwide. Now Bill brings his distinctive sense of humor to the Liang Acrobatic & Comedy Show. Bill is the quick-witted host who delivers his unique sense of humor, as audience volunteers become a part of this exciting and fun interactive experience. You will laugh out loud as you enjoy seeing your fellow audience members try their hands at becoming acrobats in this fun-filled part of the show.
