I am in a bouffon troupe

I have recently been on a quest for the roots of comedy and gotten deep into physical theater, clown, slapstick, Commedia dell’arte, and bouffon. I co-founded a bouffon troupe, MIL GRUS, in LA last year, and this summer we stormed the Hollywood Fringe Festival, taking home several awards and an invitation to the Soho Playhouse in NYC this fall.

Bouffon is part physical theater part satire. The bouffon is grotesque yet beautiful, constantly walking the line between charming the audience and scaring them, but ultimately taking the piss out of them is the main objective.
