KIMTOM CLOWN FESTIVAL 2008: Friday
"Zoot Allures! If you mess wit zee, how you say, strollers... zee stage clowns zay weeell open up zee can of whoop-ass!"
Ryan Combs "eeping" it up for the camera, oblivious to his wife Romina passing by as Steve Copeland gives Andrew Scharff tips on "closing".
Now it's Steve's turn to "eep", which is not impressing Gregory Parks. Behind them, Jessi does an impression of a Georgia O'Keefe with her crinolin.
Alexander the Jester. Perhaps my favorite performer of all.. such a sweet, gentle man. My feeling is that he is behind many of the pranks in the alley here... he doesn't actively participate much, but seems rather to inspire zany behavior it in those around him.
He has a different approach and style but cracks us up nonetheless with his "gramalot", which makes him sound like a human tape recorder.
A brilliant comic mind, and a top-notch performer but above all... he impresses me more as a man of taste.
Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone getting surprised at the conclusion of their show with an onstage party in celebration of their first wedding anniversary.
Andrew, me and Mark
