About Me

Jon Hicks

Performer & Maker of Shows and Stuff

I have a Fine Art degree, and worked as a scenic painter and prop maker before starting to perform professionally in 2000.

I make shows for outdoors and indoors, all with an anchor in strong visuals, they are normally unspoken and funny.

I have travelled the world performing and appeared at many of the worlds leading outdoors festivals.

I started with a solo speed painting act which grew into a silent clowning show with a speed painting finale : The International Man of Artistry.

I  work solo and in collaborations. For outdoors notably creating chain reaction contraption show WORKS in 2013 with artist Mark Haywood.

Making solo clowning/magic show Kickmouse in 2018/19

Most recently, taking a new direction, by speaking a lot and  creating the Faith Free Mystic Psychic, Sorcerer Street prophet show The Visionary with Matt Rudkin.

Recent Project

The Visionary

A magical, funny, dramatic & thought-provoking show aimed at encouraging respect for diverse perspectives.

A faith free, mystic, psychic, sorcerer, street prophet; who delivers an erratic “sermon” from the top of a homemade podium, whilst performing magical feats.He demonstrates increasingly miraculous powers; finally removing his robe to reveal wings and perform a levitation.

A heckler denounces him as a charlatan, the Visionary  sets the man’s hat on fire and chaos ensues with a series of end of days incidents; a council worker arrives to shut him down, the Visionary disappears in a cloud of smoke.

The show features local volunteers, as plants in the audience, puppeteers and chaos creators.

A magical, funny, dramatic & thought-provoking show aimed at encouraging respect for diverse perspectives.

The International man of Artistry

My classic solo Street show. The International Man of Artistry

"I really like the show, thank god you don't ride a unicycle...so refreshing to see a grumpy man in a pink rabbit suit"
