"In certain cities, dryness is a problem. Me and water, I can rival a fish. I have learned all the singers' methods. We trade remedies."
Although his title certainly indicates Iverson plays an important role in the circus, he's quick to say he takes second billing.
"The first bill is four-legged," he said, referring to the animals that perform.
And in everyday life, first and foremost he is a family man. Iverson's wife, Priscilla, works with the production staff.
"She gets paid to tell me what to do," he said. They have two children, a daughter and a son, and Iverson said he's blessed to have his family around him all of the time.
"To me that's my billion-dollar contract is the fact that my children, my wife and I can maintain our relationship and grow it. We haven't had a time that they've been apart from us, and the advantages of that are extraordinary."
