KACHUNGA AND THE ALLIGATOR
From deep in the swamps of Florida comes Kachunga, a real American Bushman who dares to step foot into the wet domain of the alligator. Watch in astonishment as he apprehends a ferocious man-eating reptile with his bare hands. Most people have never seen an alligator up close. The mystique of these giant reptiles is in itself a big draw. Now imagine the thrill of watching a man pit his strength and agility against nine feet and 300 Ibs. of lashing tail and gnashing jaws in a dangerous dance of reflexes and cunning. Kachunga's struggle with the alligator keeps each member of the audience on the edge of their seat, biting their nails and curling their toes.
Kachunga and the Alligator is educational, funny and safe to view. The alligators are treated with respect and care and are not harmed in any manner.
MAGIC OF LANCE GIFFORD & COMPANY
When Gifford was sixteen years old, he left home and began performing his magic tricks and illusions on a traveling circus. It was then that he purchased and fell in love with his first show animal. Sheaba was a twelve week old South American Mountain lion that Gifford raised himself.
Over the years, Gifford has toured throughout much of the US and Canada, amazing audiences with his fast-paced and highly entertaining magical illusion show. He continues to spend much of the year entertaining audiences at state and county fairs, festivals and corporate events. Gifford is also responsible for raising tens of thousands of dollars for groups and organizations with the presentation of his shows in schools throughout vast regions of the country.
Lance Gifford's unique style and flare for theatrical presentation sets his illusions and magic tricks apart from those of the average magician. He and his company perform some of the world's most modern and intriguing illusions, including the "Metamorphosis," once performed by the late, great Harry Houdini.
Lance Gifford has had the privilege of sharing the stage and spotlight with such notables as Trisha Yearwood, the late Johnny Cash, Chubby Checker and "New Kids on the Block. "He has also appeared with many Sci-fi stars from "Star Trek," "Star-Trek--The Next Generation," and "Deep Space Nine."
