Specialises in theatrical circus, flow art and cabaret performances primarily suiting a nautical theme or fantasy concept, Michael Speranza provides engaging shows where audiences can laugh, feel inspired and be taken on a voyage without having to leave their seats.

Often referred to as his alter-ego “Pirateman”, Michael was notoriously seen throughout Perth and Western Australia for the past 10 years (2011 to 2021) regularly appearing at festivals, cabaret shows and community/corporate events from Esperance to Exmouth, Gascoyne to Geraldton, Kununurra to Kalgoorlie and quite literally everywhere in between! He’s performed interstate and internationally, which you can find out more about by visiting his CV/Portfolio.

Now he has moved to Sydney in 2022, and is here to bring you joy, glee and magic form the seven seas!
