Forwarded to Chris Biro from Curry Roberts (Board Member Virginia State Fair)
From: Sue Mullins (Entertainment Director who hired Chris Biro and The Pirate’s Parrot Show)I am getting a lot of positive feedback on the Pirate’s Parrot Show, all in the same vein as the following.Sue—– Original Message —–
My daughter Sabrina and I saw the Pirate’s Parrots show Saturday (September 25th) at the Virginia State Fair. I must admit when we saw the show listed in the program I figured it would be like all the other shows we had seen in the past where the birds walk across “high wires,” bicycle, or pull a string to hoist a flag. However, this show was not only different, it was also entertaining and educational! We arrived 15 minutes before show time and had to sit on the ground as all the bleachers were already taken. Although my first thought was that it was going to be difficult to enjoy the show under such circumstances, I became so engrossed that I wasn’t even aware of it.
“Captain Christopher” Biro did not put the birds through degrading stunts or force them to perform. It was obvious that the birds were treated with respect. He demonstrated their beauty and grace through natural flight, while educating the crowd of the affects of deforestation and the importance of recycling. Mr. Biro has excellent people skills as well as he fielded a variety of questions from a very diversified crowd and provided answers that were always educational without being demeaning.
Mr. Biro did a wonderful job showing the birds’ true nature. What a welcome relief from the sad, molding birds seen in pet stores or people’s homes. I have recommended The Pirate’s Parrot Show to all of my friends. I hope you will bring Mr. Biro back again next year. You can be sure I will visit the fair if you do.
