We are all born funny. We come into the world with something unique, something off-balance. It’s what drives your loved ones mad or makes them fall in love with you. It is the most intimate part of ourselves, it is why we get back up when we fall down. It’s what makes us most Human, it’s what makes us poetic. Physically, Emotionally, Spiritually…Ecumenically. It is the Clown.
Throughout history, the Clown has played a vital role in our communities. Cross-culturally, the Clown has been looked to in order to reveal what is most human about us all and asks us to laugh about it.
Michael teaches Clown in New York City and the world renowned Shakespeare & Company in Lenox MA. He also teaches workshops and classes at Universities and cities around the country.
