WEST PLAINS, Mo. – Area residents will be asking “how did he do that” after comedic mentalist Sean Bott performs Sept. 21 at the West Plains Civic Center theater.
Tickets for the 7 p.m. event, sponsored by Missouri State University-West Plains’ University/Community Programs (U/CP) Department, are $10 each and available through the West Plains Civic Center box office, 110 St. Louis St., from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays, or by phone at 417-256-8087. Missouri State-West Plains students with a BearPass ID will be admitted free.
Bott developed his love for entertaining crowds while growing up on an army base in Saudi Arabia, according to his official biography. Since then, his innovative and distinct brand of comedy mentalism has enthralled audiences worldwide.
During his show, handfuls of pocket change will melt, time will travel on watches and smart phones, minds will be read, objects will move with no physical contact, and participants will feel themselves pushed even though Bott is standing clear across the stage, organizers said. Although these mental feats are astounding, Bott’s comedic timing, improvisational skill and his hilarious character voices are what wins audiences over, they added.
In addition to his stage show, Bott has appeared on the Sci-Fi Channel, the WB and on-air with Radio Disney performing his unique blend of hilarious characters and psychic entertainment. His film credits include 127 Hours with James Franco, Alien Express with Lou Diamond Phillips and Dark Angels with Jonathan Tyler.
“We are looking forward to bringing another outstanding entertainer to West Plains,” said U/CP Director Brenda Polyard. “This will be a unique experience as Sean blends his hilarious character and physical entertainment. Sean Bott will definitely leave you wondering how he comes up with these things.”
