"Consummate clowning" The Guardian
Coming up this weekend, Sunday 16th I have a gig in Palmerston North, yippee! It’s their Esplanade day. The fun starts early from 10am, hopefully I’m not on then!
After a fantastic year in 2019 where I won The Iron Chicken award at The Christchurch Bread and Circus World Buskers Festival New Zealand, Silver at The Saint Paul Des Lax Circus Festival in France and played many new festivals plus some old favourites, I am finally home in Wellington NZ slowly planning for the coming year.
2020 is going to be an important one for me as it will mark thirty years of mucking about for a living as a clown. Not bad for an ex menswear manager from North London.
I am delighted to announce that this January I will start rehearsals with my great friends Sachie Mikawa and Trent Baumann on our debut Wellington Fringe show Oddacity at Bats Theatre. Check out all the details here:
Also do keep an eye on my Workshop page for an update very soon on my next workshop hopefully in Wellington.
At the beginning of last summer I got asked by The NZ Herald Newspaper to write a short article on my five favourite festivals. You can read the article here:
This is my new website, it still needs some tweaking but I was keen to just get it out there and adjust it later. I’ll write more soon. Fx
