and the art of failing
Everybody has an act. That one thing that you use to sell yourself to the world. To make people think you are cool, funny, succesful. That you know what life is all about. But what happens when the act starts failing? Slow panic creeps up the spine. People might see who you really are. Charlie has an act with a banana. Now what could possibly go wrong?
Charlie is a contemporary clown performance
Inspired by the work of legends like Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, Buster Keaton and Tommy Cooper.
Stand-up comedy, slapstick, musical theater and dark humour all wrapped up in an act about a clown who is afraid he lost the art of failing.
Language no problem / 12+
