This new American clown looks interesting. I'll try to catch him when he performs in London next month:
Breathtakingly brilliant clown Doctor Brown wins comedy award (Aug 25th)
In a big year for physical comedy at the Fringe, Doctor Brown has won the Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award.
The American performer, real name Philip Burgers, was the winner of the main prize for his show Befrdfgth, a wordless hour of mime and audience interaction. He is the first silent comedian or almost silent; he says a few nonsense words at one point to win the main prize in the 32-year history of the awards, which began as the Perrier Awards in 1981.
Nica Burns described Doctor Brown as a breathtakingly brilliant clown with enormous charisma in a fantastic show. The Timess review of Doctor Brown praised him for his stunning mix of anarchy and symmetry... the strangest, funniest, most exciting hour Ive spent at the Fringe so far.
