The Clown Un_Masked – Joel Jeske

Joel Jeske relaxing (I guess?) with his standard cup of coffee.

Joel in the highly successful and very funny show ROOM 17B.


I talked to Joel a year ago about meeting up for a photo session to begin this project. We finally got to it today in April 2011.

Joel Jeske is one of the funniest men around. And not just when he is performing! I have seen and worked with him on quite a few shows/projects including the recent Parallel Exit show ROOM 17B and we did a book together on Clown. His stage persona is so strong and funny that the audience always remembers him after the shows are over. I had the pleasure to photograph him at my home. . One of his other performing projects is the family show Hey Ya Brothers with Christoper Lueck.

If you want to laugh a lot – I suggest you take your friends, kids, aunts and uncles to see JOEL perform where ever he is appearing!
