I put off seeing this because I usually do not enjoy theatre relying on physical comedy, nor am I generally entertained by anything "circus-y". But the great reviews and my ties to the Bay Area (topical to this piece) led me to give it a go. ...continued

Run - don't walk - to see this show. It is funny + heartwarming + endearing. And good for all ages on differing levels. What a childhood!

This is an outstanding night in the theater. Lorenzo Pissoni is a unique talent with a gift for serious physical clowning. What a joy to be in an audience that was laughing as uncontrollably as I was. Run do not walk to see this!

The physical dexterity of the actor/acrobat/clown has to be seen ...the story evolves with twists and turns and never fails to delight...My wife and I had a great time and wish anyone who has wanted to run away and join the circus could see this...continued

Clowning has never been so cute and charming! It's a touching, heartfelt tribute both to his craft and to his family and heritage. Music, photography, jokes, and acrobatics are seamlessly woven together for an evening of true entertainment. ...continued

I try to avoid going downtown from the Westside during the week, but this performance was worth the hassle. The very talented, appealing and resilient nature of this one man performance left the audience cheering, laughing and sharing is...continued

This is a funny yet poignant one-man autobiographical show from a guy who was the son of a professional clown. He performs clown antics with great physical dexterity, and he's a funny storyteller. Watch for the falling sandbags in the second half....continued

The seats were similar to the ones we had when we were subscribers. This one man show was most interesting. Although the antics of the clown, the humor of his presentation, and the artistry of his physicality were exceptional, it was his life...continued

Great One Man show.

Intersting family relationship, and entertaining clown routines, in a small theater environment.
