About Fred Anderson - "The world's only near sighted comic/magician/juggler/escape-artist & tightrope walker"

"Frisco Fred" Anderson is a variety entertainer. The show is a combo of stand-up comedy, juggling, magic & escape-artistry.

Fred learned juggling way back in 1975 while studying theater & computer science at SF State. His first performances were at San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf and Marin's Renaissance Pleasure Faire in 1976 and he was instantly hooked. His performances have taken him around the world several times over including 2 World Expos, The Edinburgh Festival Fringe (5 times), Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts & The Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. He really has been "Around the world for a laugh".


Fred Anderson offers up a high energy blend of comedy/ magic/juggling & escape artistry.


His experience has taken him all over the world in all sorts of situations. (2 World Expos, the Edinburgh Festival, 12+ years Carnival Cruise Line and more)
