These shows will also feature accordionist and singer Jet Black Pearl accompanying Louis with bubbly music to double your pleasure. "Greatest bubble show on Earth." - SFGate.com "It's a fantastic show. Louis Pearl playfully forms bubbles beyond imagination, and engages the audience with his easygoing nonverbal slapstick."
