KidShow Welcomes Two Time Guinness World Record Holder Dr. U.R. Awesome

This year the KidShow is pleased to welcome Gary Pearlman to the event on Saturday, April 9 from 1pm-3pm. Pearlman, known as Dr. U.R. Awesome, is a Cleveland native who has recently accomplished receiving two Guinness World Records for his mastery of the bubble.

On June 20, 2015 at Wade Oval Park in Cleveland, Dr. U. R. Awesome created the world’s largest outdoor free floating soap bubble with a volume of 96.27m (3,399.7 ft³) which is four times the world record of 23m. Pearlman took two fishing poles with string tied between as the apparatus with which to make the bubble. An independent scientist calculated the volume through photography from orthogonal angles.

Largest outdoor bubble

Immediately following, he went inside the Cleveland Botanical Gardens and claimed his second Guinness World Record by creating the world’s largest indoor free floating soap bubble with a volume of 8.5m (300.1 ft³). To create the bubble, Gary used two modified fishing poles with string tied between the ends, which were then dipped in a soap solution with a number of secret ingredients.

Mastering the art of the bubble has brought Dr. U. R Awesome opportunities to perform his award winding skills all over the world. As a skilled professional bubbleologist, Dr. U.R. Awesome will have some fun with the kids and adults at the KidShow. One of his favorite skills is to magically put people into their own bubble. The joy and amazement of being in a bubble brings smiles to faces. KidShow attendees will be able to experience this and snap a photo! Stop by for a dose of fun as that is all Dr. U.R. Awesome prescribes, nothing but fun.
