“Fergus Aitken is a physical performer of considerable ability with many years of performance and professional experience and dedication to his craft. He has a solid reputation as a professional and adaptable comic entertainer. Fergus was hired as a performer and entertainer for World of Wearable Art Awards between 2006-2012.
