Twisted Dog Productions is the brainchild of Chris "Professor Twist" Burch and Laurie "Myka-Angelo" Burch. Chris found his love for magic at the age of seven when he learned his first trick. Over the next several years he honed his craft until finding theater in high school, it was there that he discovered a knack for acting and improvisation. While working with a local dinner theater he began entertaining as Tater the Clown. This lead him down the path to becoming a Balloon Artist, then eventually a Face Painter. He had the opportunity to meet a wide variety of entertainers in his travels in the Navy, and he decided to always learn something from all of his encounters. It was while in the Navy he met his future wife and partner, Laurie. Upon his departure from the service, he moved to Laurie’s home state of North Carolina where he continued to entertain. Not long after, they relocated to Chris’ home city of Birmingham where they embarked on a new journey of Balloon Art and Magic with the creation of Chris’ newest personality and alter ego, Professor Twist. While in Alabama, they developed new stage shows and began entertaining at fairs, festivals, and libraries around the southeast. Chris developed a unique take on storytelling by integrating Volunteers, Balloon Art, Improv, Magic and Comedy into a concept he named Fairy Tales With A Twist. Originally developed as a way to encourage children to read, it quickly grew to cover so many other topics. Chris returned to North Carolina in 2009 with his wife/partner in crime, and their son
