Vaudevisuals interview with Jos Houben – The Art of Laughter

Several years ago I had the pleasure to interview Jos Houben. A very funny man indeed!

He was appearing at the time in a Beckett play directed by Peter Brook at the Baryshnikov Arts Center. We did the interview in his dressing room and he talked about Beckett, Peter Brook, his show and his teaching of slapstick, theatre, and physical comedy. A great interview posted below!

On Oct 27th thru Nov 19th, he is appearing at Theatre for a New Audience doing his delightfully funny show “The Art of Laughter”.

Run! Don’t walk to get tickets to this production. He is sharing the bill with another very funny physical comedian Marcello Magni in the duet show titledMarcel“. (a duet with Jos.)

“Jos Houben and Marcello Magni are two towering figures representing some of the highest form of physical theatre and clowning existing today. They are splendidly brilliant.
– David Shiner, Lucille Lortel Winner for his work in OLD HATS with Bill Irwin.

The Clown Un_Mask – Kenny Raskin – Massachusetts

I have known Kenny Raskin since the 1980’s when we met at a Clown Theater Festival in Philadelpia. We have stayed in touch over the years especially during his time performing in Disney’s Beauty and The Beast on Broadway. Today we got a chance to catch up and take some photographs for this series.
