Prizzini Brothers

The Amazing Prizzini brothers have been performing as a comedy circus act for over a decade.  They have performed for Aloft Circus, MSA Circus Arts, and Yes Ma'am Circus.

They specialize in hosting circus variety shows, interwoven with the patented brand of mischievous humour based in their entire lifetime of brotherly shenanigans.


The two company members are Scott and Jim Priz, who, together, are the Amazing Prizzini Brothers!

Their mission statement is- "Make the Audience Complicit in our Mischief!"


Arik Mendelevitz is the CEO of Raphael Entertainment, a graduate of both Circus Warehouse (New York City) and The Actors Gymnasium's (Evanston) professional circus training programs.  He has spent the past six years building up and refining "Poised" and is excited to bring all the lessons he's learned to CCPAF.  To find out more about his work, feel free to head over to and book your next event today.
