Zerbe to perform at SHS auditorium
Alex Zerbe, a two-time Guinness World Record holder, performs his 60-minute Zaniac Comedy Show at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10, at the Sequim High School auditorium, 533 N. Sequim Ave.
Zerbe is describing as moving like a rubber band from one end of the stage to the other, including beatboxing, juggling, dancing, singing, music and magic in his act. The “Professional Zaniac” has been cracking jokes onstage for almost 15 years, zigzagging between physical stunts and non-stop comedy.
During the show vegetables are sliced in half by flying playing cards, flaming torches and bowling balls are juggled.
A self-described “human cartoon,” his show isn’t only for the kids in the family. “
I try to make my show like the movie Shrek, super entertaining for the kids but there’s a whole other level of comedy for teens and adults,” Zerbe said.
Admission to this event, hosted by Olympic Peninsula Academy, is free for OPA and Dungeness Virtual School students. Adult tickets are $5, students are $3.

Author with Sequim roots releases book
Poulsbo author Judy Granlee-Gates has released her first book, “Bigger Living, Smaller Space: Resizing for a Clean and Cozy Home.”
Granlee-Gates, a 1982 Sequim High graduate with family still residing in the Sequim and Port Angeles areas, is a local custom builder of 35 years, an “advocate of smaller living and an avid declutterer and organizer.”
Her new book focuses on the clutter in homes, and how to let go of many sentimental items. She also encourages “smaller living with sacrifice.”
Granlee-Gates has assisted many families with downsizing later in life. As a result of that struggle and seeing how people value possessions over their time and freedom, she said she opted to resize for herself from a home of 3,400 square feet to 1,131 square feet — and loves it.
“Bigger Living, Smaller Space” is available on Amazon for the kindle version, and the paperback is available at Barnes and Noble as well as independent bookstores. Or, visit judygranleegates.com.
