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.

Performing as an actor in the currently running show FRAGMENTS (Directed by Peter Brook) at The Baryshnikov Arts CenterJos Houben has been around the world with his one-man show ‘The Art of Laughter‘ besides directing other shows and teaching at The Ecole Jacques LeCoq.

I attended his one-man show “The Art of Laughter” a few months ago at Alliance Francaise and enjoyed the delirious joy of learning at the same time as laughing.

I met Jos at the BAC and we did this wonderful interview in his dressing room.
