I was very happy to read that the very funny Richard Saudek was creating a new show. His last delightful show ‘Beep Boop’ was praised up and down!
Richard met with me and I asked him about his new show ‘Dead & Alive’.
A variety of circ-esque acts featuring “Dead + Alive”; a 2 clown show in which 1 clown dies (a 2 clown act with 1.5 clowns). Juggling as you may never have preferred! Clown acts that warrant no applause! And musical accompaniment that is borderline intrusive. He will be accompanied by Dana Dailey, Estelle Bajou, Jennifer Vanilla, and the film being shown is directed by Pher Gleason.
Richard Saudek: Richard grew up making faces at himself in the mirror while he brushed his teeth and then trained as a clown with Rob Mermin, a mentee of Marcelle Marceau and Etienne Decroux…making Richard a dementee. Currently he’s a member of One Year Lease Theater Co, and teaches clown classes in Northern Greece each summer with OYL. At the 14th St Y, he played the role of Lucky in WAITING FOR GODOT in Yiddish and ALSO presented his clown show, BEEP BOOP. He’s performed at The New Victory, 59E59 Theaters, Barrow St Theatre, Ars Nova, the Bushwick Starr, HERE, LaMama, Teatro Circulo, The Player’s Theatre, The Pearl, Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts. Regionally: Walton Arts Center, Stages Rep, Flint Rep, Shakespeare Theater Company, Williamstown Theater Festival, American Repertory Theater. Internationally: Teatro López de Ayala, Edinburgh Fringe, Shanghai Theatre Academy. He can be spotted on BONDiNG (Netflix), Bull (CBS), and Boardwalk Empire (HBO).
