Lavalier radio mic for sure. And plenty of PZMs on the walls and ceiling for when they start climbing.

Nah... you're not being creative, E. You should be thinking along the lines of a shotgun mic, sword sized, and packed into the Ninja sword holder. Functional, and part of the act.

If the Ninja is a bit of a twat... then you can stick the mic in it's proper place ;)

I can vouch sinic is deadly (  :;) ) serious!

Is said ninja performing on its own or is it on with a band? If on its own then actually a shotgun pointed at him would porbably work. If he needs his own then lapel mic really. If it's a radio unit they should hire it themselves and patch it into your desk. Wireless ain't normally supplied at small gigs like that.

Or you could try the new AKG Chukka1000 mics:
