The Third Banana heartily endorses this without reservation:

Internationally Acclaimed Theatrical Clown Show


Bald Comedy. In Tails.

comes to New York City April 16, 2008

at the American Theatre of Actors

New York - Award-winning American theatrical clown show "Bambouk" has toured internationally since 2003, and now they bring their vaudeville-inspired silent comedy to New York City for a limited run. Called "Pioneers in the new face of clown" and "Inspiring and Amazing" by audiences from Alaska to China, San Juan to Japan, this intimate theatrical silent spectacle recalls Samuel Beckett, Buster Keaton and Bugs Bunny. Magic, music and manipulation are woven into a seamless blend of character comedy and theatrics not to be missed by lovers of physical theatre, silent film comedies and Warner Brothers Cartoons. Bambouk opens on April 16, 2007 at American Theatre of Actors' Chernuchin Theatre (314 West 54th Street, Second Floor).

Bambouk is the creation of two American theatre clowns, Matthew Duncan and Brian Foley. Masters of the variety arts, Matthew and Brian juggle plates, flip hats, ride a six-foot unicycle, play the accordion, ukulele and musical saw, even make an audience member float in mid-air! Wearing no makeup, just red noses and tuxedos, Bambouk is THE clown show for people afraid of clowns!

BAMBOUK has opened for the Drifters, the Platters and Charo, and shared the stage with award-winning circus artists from the Moscow Circus, Nanjing Acrobatic Troupe, Big Apple Circus and Cirque du Soleil. Together and individually they have been the featured physical comedians in stage productions, ice shows, cruise ships and theme parks since 1990. BAMBOUK has been seen multiple times in China, Japan, Alaska, Mexico, the Caribbean islands, and throughout the contintental U.S.
