Clown Cabaret — The 7th Anniversary Show

October 9th @ 8 p.m.

Join the occasionally ebullient, sometimes sinister, but always elation-inspiring cast of D.C.’s longstanding Clown Cabaret as they celebrate 7 YEARS of laughter and what the locals like to call ‘character development.’

The sizzling line-up includes Rich Potter, Sabrina Mandell, Karen Montanaro, Graham Pilato, Gwendolyn, Wendy Burch and many more surprises!

If you never been to a Clown Cabaret, lucky number seven is not to be missed. You’ll see veterans, newcomers and in-betweeners experimenting with the multidisciplinary (and gloriously ludicrous) craft of clowning for your laughing pleasure.

And if you’re one of those ‘I don’t do clowns’ people, step out of your joyless bubble and stop being such a stick in the mud! From the Clown Cabaret web site: “Drawing from modern, theatrical, circus, commedia, verbal, silent, knockabout, musical and other disciplines, you will see a great variety under the umbrella of Clown.”
