    Mark Gindick: Death Defying Schtick

    Mark Gindick gives a highly personal lecture/demonstration about circus and clown life. He traces how a lawyer’s kid in the NY suburbs fell in love with physical comedy and by the end of his teens was touring the country with Ringling Bros (red-nosed, face covered in red and white greasepaint). Rich with humor, honesty, and historical sweep, this lecture/dem showcases a major American clown’s deeply personal journey through all of the major touring circus companies. Mark explains how he got into the circus, thrived, and then after a series of setbacks, almost left the circus forever.
