In 1984 I had made a meeting with Michael Davis, juggler and comedian to do some photographs for a book I was working on at the time.
The session was at his apartment on the Upper West Side of New York City. I shot some personal ‘at home’ shots and then we scheduled
a session at my studio for a ‘professional’ shot.
Michael Davis is a very funny man. His credits go on for pages. Here is a link to his web page which list them all.
Here are the photographs we took at those two separate sessions.
He is also known to have juggled a bowling ball and egg. Here is that spot on Saturday Night Live.
Some Quotes from Michael’s work.
“Mr. Davis is an inspired deadpan comedian.
I was as close as I have ever been to rolling in an aisle with laughter. Nothing could top him.”
New York Times
“Davis’s act is like a lethal virus- anywhere, anytime, it will kill in a matter of seconds.”

If he is ever appearing in your neighborhood I suggest you see him perform.
Not many performers are as funny and intelligent in their humor not to mention his amazing juggling skills!
Here is a video of Michael Davis on one of his hysterical appearances on Johnny Carson show!
