After a critically acclaimed sell-out Fringe Festival, Vigilantelope’s award-winning idiot returns to combine clowning, music, silence and singing in this darkly euphoric narrative that is as cerebral as it is silly. Don’t worry, the show has no philosophy. Maybe a bit. But that’s it.
Joel took two years to develop his show by studying clown under a Parisian psychopath and belting out enka classics alongside a Japanese juggernaut. Although he has been training informally as a stupid idiot for 27 years, he sought formal accreditation from the world’s most renowned clown teacher – Phillippe Gaulier – who trained the likes of Sacha Baron Cohen. He now has that piece of paper in a plastic pocket in his sock drawer. Well done mate.
