With such an astonishing array of skills, it’s no wonder Nikolai is one of Alberta’s most sought-after festival entertainers.
In fact, his wild and wacky performances have been enjoyed by large crowds at major theatre festivals around the world!
Nikolai is a versatile and professional entertainer. His wide range of skills allow you the flexibility to book him anywhere from your main stage to roving among the crowd as any one of several uniquely entertaining characters.
Nikolai has performed on the shores of three oceans, and the ice of the Arctic. He was the first New Vaudevillian from North America to perform in newly democratic Hungary. He has been called “spectacularly, astonishingly funny!”
Nikolai was born in Cape Breton Nova Scotia, where his Ontarian father and his Scottish Quebecois mother gave him his Slavic name. Nikolai lived in several parts of Canada before settling in Edmonton Alberta. This should give him a unique insight into Canadian culture, and the things that bind us together, but instead it only gives him a permanent case of jet lag.
Nikolai is enthusiastically received by large crowds at Festivals around the world. He has performed in North America and Europe for audiences of up to 10 000. In Edmonton he is a perennial audience favorite.
He has been known to pop up everywhere from your local summer festival to the national music video network. He has been broadcast coast to coast on nation-wide television, appearing on the CBC and CTV networks and on Much Music. Nikolai has performed at functions attended by parliamentarians and the Governor General, and for Inuit elders in the high Arctic.
Although his work takes him around the world, Nikolai still makes his home in Edmonton, Canada. “I love the winter here!” he explains.
Absolutely fabulous . . . I have heard many great comments on the fantastic all-round entertainment you provided. The patience and dedication were greatly appreciated. . . It was a pleasure having you here, and I look forward to working with you again
Thank -you Nikolai for making the Children’s Christmas Party the BEST party in Years.
…an individual whose professionalism is superceded only by his versatility and adaptability to whatever circumstances and challenges present themselves.
Thank you Nikolai for helping make our convention social nights an event that cannot be topped. People are still talking about how much fun they had.
Your energetic presentation aroused great enthusiasm. You are a gem of a performer! The character you created brought delight and captured the essence of the event.
Your act was definitely a crowd pleaser, ‘wowing’ both children and adults alike! I can hear kids begging their parents next Christmas Eve to visit the blood donor clinic again, thanks to you.
You did it again! Our party was a huge success, receiving rave reviews from staff and volunteers alike. Your contribution…went a long way to making this the success that it was.
I’d like to thank you for your excellent performance…. Your act was very entertaining and catered to all age groups, and I’ve never seen all of the children so riveted by a performance…
‘Fantastic…Fun…Spectacular’ were only a few of the words used by visitors …you were wonderful… People were laughing, joining in, and walking through with the smiles and amazement that I thought could only be seen on the faces of children at a carnival!
We would like to thank you for delivering on your every promise to entertain the over 3,000 people who attended our open house. Your roving style of high energy entertainment thrilled both the young and the old.
He is an incredible performer and was able to keep the audiences entertained at any time or anywhere
