The Lizard Wizard

and Comedy

The World's only Stand-up Comic, Snake-Handling Magician. He's the only entertainer for all things reptile. After many years of doing talks at the Dallas Nature Center, word of mouth grew to the point that Daryl began Snake Encounters in 1992 to address the need for an accessible entity for the general public. It was established with the purpose of providing education on the subject of snakes in a humorous and entertaining way - in order to dispel myths, help audience members overcome the phobia, and to help guide the rapidly growing hobby of informed and responsible herpetoculture.
