Clown Cabaret – We’re Back!

Wednesday, April 17th at 8 pm

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

Clown Cabaret produces a potpourri of amazing comedy talent, including veterans of Big Apple Circus, Ringling Bros., Cirque du Soleil (and more), and graduates of LeCoq, Gaulier, and Dell’Arte schools (and more).

Come see a variety of … variety performers who are stretching to create better, stronger, funnier acts. We know how it works on paper and in the studio; the next step is getting it on stage! Come join us and be a part of the process!

Clowns are terribly misunderstood these days. Our goal is to change that. With highly skilled, well-trained performers, Clown Cabaret will not only expand the audience’s understanding, but give them the opportunity to laugh, cry, and, maybe, throw a pie in someone’s face.

Clown Cabaret was founded in 2010 by DC performers Karen Beriss, Matthew Pauli and Rich Potter in order to give clowns an opportunity to try new material in a supportive and fun venue with a great audience. Variety performers showcase new material and explore new facets of established material and, most importantly, play.

Tickets: Adults: $25, Children (16 & under): $15, Students/Seniors/Veterans: $20. Click here.

When Annie’s husband John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.
