Tomáš Kubínek – (toh-mawsh koo-bee-neck), was born in Prague and at the age of 3 was smuggled out of the country by his parents to escape the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia. After two months in a refugee camp in Austria, the Kubínek family was granted asylum in Canada and it was there, in St. Catharines, Ontario, that Tomáš witnessed his first circus. He became passionately interested in clowns, circus, theater, and magic.
The one and only Dr. Professor Kubínek is a comic genius, virtuoso vaudevillian, and all-round charmer who gives audiences an utterly joyous experience they’ll remember for a lifetime. With appearances in over 30 countries and a professional career spanning 3 decades, Mr. Kubínek has won the hearts of thousands in theaters, opera houses, television specials, on Broadway, and at international festivals of culture. Transcending categorization, his work leaves audiences clutching their sides with laughter, breathless, and madly in love.
Mr. Kubínek is the recipient of international awards including; The Moers Comedy Prize from The International Comedy Arts Festival in Germany, The Schneestern Award from the International Festival of Humor in Arosa, Switzerland, and The Samuel Beckett Theatre Award from The Dublin Theater Festival in Ireland. He now resides in rural Connecticut. For more information, please visit www.kubinek.com.
