Two Superb Clowns

Postby Jack Shalom » March 20th, 2016, 12:10 am

You may enjoy reading my blog post about the new show of Bill Irwin and David Shiner, two superb clowns.
Magician Steve Cuiffo was the magic consultant for their Great Tomsoni tribute sketch:

If you're in the NYC area, it's a must see.

Not being snarky, honest, and nothing at all against Mr Cuiffo -

but why not just ask Johnny T himself?

I was lucky to have a front row seat at Old Hats when it was in town a couple of years ago. I completely agree with Jack's review.
And, I should mention, I was chosen by "Mrs. Thompson" to be her dance partner during that bit.

Lucky you! But I think I would be very nervous to be in such a situation.
As for Johnny Thompson, he also has the P&T thing going, too.
And who's to say that Cuiffo didn't consult with him?

Not me! it just seemed a bit odd to have a middleman. Bill Irwin's a fairly big deal, I assume Tomsoni would return his phone calls.

Twenty some odd years ago, I was in Washington DC on business for a week, with nothing to do in the evenings. The last night I was there I realized that "Fool Moon" was playing at the Kennedy Center, and I could have gone to see it. I was really bummed that I had missed it.

Michael Jeter used to play "Mr. Noodle" on Sesame Street. After he died (what a loss!), Bill Irwin took over as Mr. Noodle's brother, Mr. Noodle. He was excellent -- so good, that you'd put up with Elmo to watch him.
