“I have worked with Michael “Dirt” for years. He is, without question, one of the most exciting/innovative entertainers (artists) in the business. When I book him I know my clients will be thrilled — first off, what he does, no one else does, so they see something they have not seen before, (this includes his spectacular costuming and choice of music), secondly he’s a great guy — friendly, reliable, easy to work with– and to top it off his enthusiasm for what he does is infectious. I’m lucky to have met him and to have him included on my roster of Outstanding Performers.” – Marla Mase, Writer/ Performer/ Singer/ Songwriter/ Producer

“I met Michael in China at an AEMI clown festival 2007 and 2008. I loved watching his performances on stage and in a festival setting. His original approach is startling and exciting. You never quite know what to expect! He is a real crowd pleaser. On another level he inspired me with his tales of body painting as performance art. He is very talented and as I said before and can’t say it enough- original. I highly recommend Michael and his troupe of talented performers.” – Taylor Baker, Independent Entertainment Professional

While most performers were content to work one character throughout the Festival, Michael’s company changed characters often and delighted both adults and children with fresh performances continuously throughout the week.

I heartily endorse Michael and Modern Gypsies Productions.” – Aaron Watkins Owner, Carab Enterprises – Wholesaler of Custom Lapel Pins & Coins
