NEWRY – The Black Diamond Family Entertainment Series will offer comic relief with performances by the Gizmo Guys, juggling dynamos, and Avner the Eccentric Sunday, Feb. 17, and Tuesday, Feb., 19, respectively, at Sunday River Ski Resort.

Both shows will begin at 7 p.m.

Performing as the Gizmo Guys, Allan Jacobs and Barrett Felker have entertained audiences around the world with their combination of dazzling technique and infectious humor. The duo has made numerous television appearances, won international juggling competitions and taught at top circus schools.

A bald charmer in red suspenders, Avner Eisenberg’s comedy defies the barriers of language and culture. He was recently inducted into the International Clown Hall of Fame and is probably best known for his endearing portrayal of The Jewel, the holy man in “The Jewel of the Nile,” co-starring Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. He was also featured in the film “Brenda Starr” and the television series “Webster and Mathnet.”

Tickets for these family events are $4 for children (6-12) and $6 for adults in advance, $6/$8 at the door. Tickets may be purchased on the mountain or at Books N Things in Bethel. For more information, call 824-3000.
