About Brent McCoy

Brent grew up on a dairy farm in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. He developed an interest in juggling and circus as a teenager, and has followed his passion ever since. He started out teaching for Circus Smirkus, then practiced for hours a day during his time at Bates College. Upon graduating with a painting degree, he quickly discovered that performing was his passion, and he began to study theater and do shows. He's a regular student at The Celebration Barn, having worked with Avner the Eccentric, Keith Johnstone, Fritz Grobe, and Robert Post, and he continues to expand the scope of his work. Besides touring his solo show, he currently performs The Secret Circus with his wife Maya, produces semi-annual shows with Vermont Vaudeville and teaches school residencies with YES! Theater.
