Geoff Hoyle's hit autobiographical solo show Geezer is a hilariously wistful look at growing old that's filled with the performer's trademark comic physicality. Known from his role as Mr. Sniff, the beloved clown of the Pickle Family Circus, and from his commedia dell'arte masterpiece Feast of Fools, Hoyle shines in this tour de force exploration of aging, which includes reminiscences of his English youth and subsequent days in America, along with musings on mortality and the meaning of life, especially when part of it is spent in a nursing home.

Jeff has an incredible memory and talent for making you feel as you lived through his stories, with him! He connects with the audience and is a wonderful story teller and reminder of why travel is so critical to our well being and to our personal development. A MUST SEE!
