Curtis Carlyle:
I was originally born on the east coast, but moved around a lot as a kid. At the age of 14 I settled in Vancouver, WA where I live now. I've always liked to be a creative person, and I've always liked the attention from being innovative. I guess becoming a variety entertainer was really the only good choice for me. I love this job.

Michael Mesa:
Hey everybody, it's Mike! So I was born in Montana, my favorite sport is juggling, and I have a cat named Cuddles. What can I say, I'm a weird dude. Don't take my word for it, you can see for yourself. But the best part is that if anyone asks, you can say that you know the coolest professional jugglers in the world!

Until early in the 20th century, Vanillatown was the world leader in vaudeville entertainment. Vanillatown held that title until 1950, the year the FCC approved the color television. Unable to adapt to this new form of entertainment, Vanillatown plummeted into obscurity.
Meanwhile as a child, Curtis Carlyle would visit the Vanillatown Library, where he would learn about vaudeville entertainment and Vanillatown history. An intrigued young Curt would return home and practice these amazing vaudeville skills.
Curt began to realize that he would be the one to put Vanillatown back on the map. Knowing he couldn’t face this challenge alone, he enlisted the help of Mike Mesa, the most athletic/handsome guy he could find in Vanillatown.
Combining Curt’s knowledge, talkative nature, and creative spirit with Mike’s athleticism, good looks, and mechanical ingenuity, they created entertainment unlike anything Vanillatown had seen for generations.
Later that day, Curt and Mike spoke at a Vanillatown town meeting. The citizens needed to know about the mission. They told everyone that they were leaving town, and would not return until Vanillatown was restored to its former greatness. And thusly the Vanillatown Vaudevillians were born.
Curt and Mike are now on a worldwide quest to rekindle the Vanillatown flame by taking their new style of vaudevillian entertainment to as many people and places as they can.
