Back at it again with the battle of the bands! Get ready for Undercover 29! Watch as your peers take the stage and showcase their musical talents performing cover songs. This time around we have the talented Ivan Pacel as the host.
Based in Los Angeles, CA, Ivan brings the term “High Energy” to an entirely different level by delivering an unforgettable show unlike anything you have seen before. As funny as a stand-up comic, and as skilled as a Chinese acrobat, Ivan has appeared on MTV, America’s Got Talent, and the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” This is why he is a favorite among corporations, colleges, trade shows, comedy clubs, cruise ships, and on the Las Vegas Strip. Whether Ivan is blindly kicking a flaming torch over his head, juggling ping pong balls using only his mouth, or having you laughing so hard that you should have worn adult diapers to his performance, his show is sure to delight any size audience, no matter the venue.
