Captain Zorikh

Actor, writer, artist, musical entertainer, filmmaker, swordfighter, and low-flying geek icon, Captain Zorikh brings his infectious energy and "for the people" concept to every show. Having established "the most fun costume contest on the East Coast" at the Big Apple Comic Con in 2003, his presence is an integral and anticipated part of NYC-s longest-running convention. He can often be found playing with his band, the Death Star Repairmen, at conventions and music venues all over the NY-NJ-CT-PA area. Film credits include "Jedi Junkies," "Breakup at a Wedding" produced by Zachary Quinto, and "After the Apocalypse," which played at 45 international film festivals. On TV he has been seen on "Big Giant Swords" and "Sci-Fi Science." On stage he played Tybalt, Mark Antony, and Richard III for ten years in "William Shakespeare's Haunted House" and recently played Abraham Lincoln and other roles in a series of plays about the African-American experience before and during the Civil War. Not only was he the only New Yorker on the first USA team at the world championships of medieval armored combat and led the all-on-all team for two years, he has produced five documentaries about medieval combat and recreations in the modern world and is the MC and head ref of the monthly Central Park exhibitions of medieval combat by GladiatorsNYC. He publishes "Watch This Space," his periodical of his comics and writings. His long-term project is "Captain Marvel Culture," a history of the many different Captain Marvels, a subject on which he lectures at conventions and art and historical institutions.
