Run away and join the circus with a clown, his dad and a lifetime of memories.
Life lessons fly fast and funny for Lorenzo Pisoni when he joins the family business—San Francisco’s Pickle Family Circus—at the age of six, earning his clown college stripes (and polka dots) through on-the-job training with his exacting father as his role model, guru and comic foil.
In his autobiographical Humor Abuse, Pisoni is a one-man whirlwind: spinning stories like plates and performing side-splitting physical feats with aplomb, mixing heart and humor in a tenderly rendered homage to the consummate performer, parent, and perfectionist who taught him everything he needed to fill some very big shoes.
Approx. 90 minutes, with no intermission.
Recommended for audiences ages 13+
Children 6 and under who may cry or fidget are never admitted.
