Intended for adults and children ages 5 and up, "BubbleMania" combines comedy, soap-bubble science, music and a fascinating exploration of bubbles of unusual shapes and sizes. The show features giant floating spheres, soap-film "serpents," bouncing bubbles, hands-only bubbling, balanced columns of bubble foam, cube bubbles, the Amazing Popcorn Machine, the mesmerizing Crystal Ball, the spinning Bubble Spacecraft, and even bubbles that burst into flame.
Carle, a cum laude graduate of the State University of New York at Geneseo, began his career as a clown in the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. There, he became the first circus entertainer in the country to encase a person in a bubble. Since then, he has parlayed his comedic timing, showmanship, science know-how and bubble-making expertise into a show that has garnered broad critical praise. The Boston Globe said, "Carle creates ephemeral masterpieces out of thin soap. Behind the act is a wealth of training and a passion for this slippery art form."
Carle performs more than 350 "BubbleMania" shows a year. He has been a bubble consultant for Pepsi and Cirque du Soleil's "The Beatles LOVE." He has been featured in Disney's "Family Fun" magazine and Scholastic's "SCOPE" magazine for teens. Carle has also co-authored a book, "BubbleOlogy: A Hands-On Science Kit."
