Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A self summary...hmmmm....how does one do it without sounding like
an advertisement or a travelogue? Here goes... Raised in NYC with
the benefit of a good family and a private school education. A
child of the 60's, I wanted to make a difference. Went on to
university with the thought to a life in politics but soon realized
the folly in that pursuit. Decided instead to affect change not
through policy but through artistic expression. Studied at a
prestigious theater academy and then fell into the arms of the
circus and found a very beautiful, timeless and profound form of
expression. The fool. The visionary. The eccentric. The clown. I
thought, to an ever more barren world of wastelands and desiccated
joys, a clown is a nova sun, radiant with the energy of his
animated ecstasies. His power to conjure smiles from indifference
is something akin to sunshine’s ability to make leaves green…both
satisfy a thirst for color; both nurture a craving for vibrancy;
both bring life to the dying.
While the capacity to be a living sun lies somewhere within each of
us, it is more often realized in clowns than in others, clowns
being among the few free enough to be what they dream of being;
free to stick there tongues out at stodgy bureaucrats, free to turn
cartwheels in the streets, free to dance their existences with
uninhibited abandon never pausing to worry how foolish they might
appear to their fellows, for the foolish and the irrational are
their acknowledged domain. Men bounded by the limits of reason and
logic cannot be whole, cannot be free, cannot be suns. If a man
refuses to accept the irrational, his attempts at finding joy are
limited. An existence that denies the absurd is sterile, desolate
A clown immerses himself in the irrational, revels in the absurd
and in doing so becomes a source of energy, a sun. But the clown is
also grounded in the mundane, integrating the real and the fanciful
with a grace and a gentleness born of his love and respect for the
world that breathes and grows around him. He reacts to, responds to
and celebrates his mutual existence with every living event he
encounters; a bumble bee, a street cleaner, a rainy day. Another
man’s distractions are a clowns delights, because where other men
live in spite of these things, a clown lives in communion with
…And because his audience is composed of people with passions and
fantasies not so very dissimilar from his own, he will touch them
in very special places reserved for unspoken wishes and unlived
dreams. When he touches these tender places, they may not laugh
uproariously…they may not even laugh at all. But the clown will
feel their smiles and at that moment everything that he has given
to them, which is everything that he is, will have been repaid in
I guess that summarizes me as well as anything.

Typical? Oh my, is there such a thing? Usually I am performing in a
show and enjoying all that comes with that. Saturday is usually a
busy day as well, so friday nights resemble a "typical" monday
night. My weekends are not on the weekend.
