 About

About The Passing Zone - Inspirational Corporate Entertainers Showcasing Excellence, Performance, Teamwork & the Power of Partnership:

The Passing Zone, Jon Wee and Owen Morse, know that you put on a great meeting last time, but now you have to top it. You need something unexpected, unique, fresh, not just the same old speaker, comedian, magician or band. Look to The Passing Zone and you will find two grown men who demonstrate teamwork by leaping around the stage in fuchsia leotards, with rapid-fire banter, throwing sickles around the body of someone from the audience (or your CEO) - as they receive a standing ovation. The audience will cheer on in delight - as they witness roaring chainsaws, flaming torches and knives flying through the air! You found an inspirational and unforgettable experience. You found a surprise. You found genuine laughter, the kind that makes your face hurt.

Jon and Owen have been educating and entertaining audiences together for over 20 years; they have one of the longest standing partnerships in corporate entertainment - a true demonstration of The Power of Partnership. They met in 1986 at a juggling convention and instantly knew they were destined to be a team. But they decided to graduate from college first, which they both did. Rather than pursue careers in Economics and Psychology, they lit some torches, and started throwing stuff into the air. Two weeks after their first performance together they won the Silver Medal at the International Juggler's Association teams competition. The next year they won Gold.

They have appeared on The Tonight Show, The Today Show and were finalists on America's Got Talent. They are at the top of their craft, with performances at the White House and in London for Prince Charles. Their first feature film was The Addams Family Movie, where Jon and Owen doubled for Gomez (Raul Julia) and Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) in the climactic Mamushka dagger-passing scene. More recently, they appeared in the award-winning comedy documentary, The Aristocrats.

Add the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, MADtv, AOL's TV's Top 5, The Wall Street Journal, the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon, four Guinness World Records, their own theater show, Gravity Attacks! and you have one of today's top comedy acts in the world.

Innovation. Collaboration. Execution.

Jon Wee and Owen Morse – The Passing Zone, are one of the most accomplished comedy duos in the nation, and they’ve done it by focusing on three success principles. Those same principles can help any group achieve fantastic results – and there is no better way to bring them these key ideas than through The Passing Zone’s hilarious, energetic, and inspiring keynote.

Innovation:
You want your company or organization to innovate, to be different, to stand out from the rest. Don’t do what everyone else does. Look for ways to be creative, unique, and move the world forward with new ideas. Success demands innovation.

The Passing Zone are innovators. They juggle astronauts (audience members), ride Segways while juggling inflated bags, and juggle chainsaws while dancing in tights and tutus. Their skill is unmatched, and their humor is unequaled – and you’ve never seen anything like it! These guys innovate each and every day – and they will inspire your people to do the same.

Collaboration:
Nobody accomplishes anything alone. In order to succeed, attendees need to understand the importance of working with others around them. Rely on each other’s strengths. Collaboration requires trust, communication, cooperation – and practice!

Jon and Owen don’t just talk about collaboration, they do it! They rely on each other at every moment, on stage, for their success, and even their safety! Watch two people whose career is based on working together. Attendees will see, like never before, that nothing beats effective collaboration.

Execution:
Great ideas and plans mean nothing without execution. Attendees need to carry out their vision and their plans – and they need to do it with excellence. Get it done, and do it right! Give your customer the very best you have to offer.

The Passing Zone will execute excellence right in front of your eyes. They need to be flawless, or things go crashing to the stage! Their precision, skill, and success will blow the audience away. They present outrageous, complex stunts, and they execute them live, on stage. If mistakes happen (and sometimes they do!) – they are handled with precision and professionalism, which is all part of execution. Show your people execution at its best – and most fun!

Teamwork: The Power of Partnership
Jon and Owen don’t just talk about teamwork – they DO it. The Passing Zone shows attendees how to be a high-performance team. It takes trust, cooperation, communication, and practice. Chainsaws fly through the air, audience members become part of the team, and your group will laugh, gasp – and wipe tears from their eyes during this hilarious keynote from one of America’s most dynamic performing duos.

Their success is proven, their talent unique – and nowhere else will you see such an exciting demonstration of the amazing things that can be accomplished when people work together.

The Passing Zone is a comedy duo who not only work together – their safety is in each other’s hands! Every moment of this presentation is a clear example of collaboration between two people who have prepared, who rely on each other’s strengths, who communicate, trust, and have fun cooperating. Their entertaining and inspiring performance uses big laughs, exciting stunts, and flawless teamwork – creating an unforgettable experience for any industry.

Audience members discover:

  • The importance of recovering from setbacks
  • How working well together creates a cohesive, effective team
  • The value of trust
  • What it takes for teamwork excellence
  • How to foster relationships with partners and customers
  • How to laugh together

Throwing chainsaws, balancing on each others’ shoulders while juggling flaming torches, demonstrating teamwork by getting people from the audience to participate – are all part of Teamwork: The Power of Partnership. Imagine your CEO standing in the middle of flying sickles and blazing torches! They even juggle three people from the audience in their exciting piece, People-Juggling.

Don’t just tell your people how to be a team…show them.

This keynote is all about people. Your people. Becoming better together.
