Andy Gross, one of the hottest comedians, magicians and ventriloquists performing today, brings his “Mind Boggling” variety show to the Courtroom Theater at the McKinney Performing Arts Center (MPAC) on Friday, Nov. 2 at 7:30 p.m.

His fast-moving show is filled with illusions, comedy and audience participation, perfect for the intimate 400-seat venue.

Gross interacts with audiences by requesting volunteers to assist with his acts as "live" ventriloquist dummies and to help with illusions. His performance in McKinney will include an attempt to levitate a volunteer from the audience.

Gross is a regular at comedy clubs, colleges, performing arts theaters and Fortune 500 corporate events across the country and performs over 150 family-friendly shows each year.

Comedy juggler and veteran entertainer Fred Anderson will open for Gross. Anderson also assists Gross with some of the magician’s more complicated illusions.

General admission tickets for Andy Gross are $22 for adults and $12 for kids.

Tickets are available through MPAC’s Emerson Ticket Office at 214-544-4630 or online at
