I’m back in Europe! I know, I can’t quite believe it. This photo was taken at ParkPerPlex Norderstedt Germany the second festival in my long European tour.

It feels awesome after two years of not travelling to finally put my clown shoes on again and hit the road. I’m now back in the UK for most of June for some more great festivals including Glastonbury at the end of this month. In July as well as performing I’m running a clown workshop at  Unit 15 Bristol  July 5 – 7. There are still a few places available, but do be quick it’s filling up fast

In August I get to play in France, Switzerland and The Netherlands and then a quick trip back to Germany in September before I say goodbye and fly back home.

More details are here on my  TOUR  page. 
I am expecting more dates to be added soon.

Scroll down to see what I have been up to these past couple of very strange years.

This was fun, I got together with some friends this summer and we took to the streets of Wellington with The DOOR KNOBS show.

Over the winter my great friend Jessica Arpin invited me onto her radio show for a long chat about my work and adventures. It was a lot of fun and you can listen to it here.

I started 2021 performing at one of my favourite festivals The Christchurch Bread and Circus World Buskers Festival here in New Zealand. It was so great to be performing again.
To advertise the festival I was contacted by The Big Idea an online Arts Newsletter to write a short piece on what I would tell my 22 year old self. You can read it here.

This is fun, my great friend Jon Hicks phoned me from London and said his son Eric is doing a circus project at school and wants to interview me. We set up a time and he fired off his questions. Eric is ten years old and he produced a fabulous biography which he deservedly got top marks for. You can view it here.

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.
