“Born To Be Wild” with Jeff Hess and special guests Alexey Mironov and Gustav.
Jeff Hess – physical comedy at its finest
Faster than a laughing hyena, Jeff Hess whirls across the stage at hurricane force, tearing the audience off their seats and triggering bursts of laughter with a mere wink.
Experience magical moments with a master of slapstick! Jeff Hess has “Crazy for the Advanced”. The actor and clown from New York City combines his unique form of slapstick, his stirring action comedy , with a fascinating body language, leaving no one unmoved and no dry eye.
The silver medal winner of the 21st Koblenz Gauklerfest Kleinkunst Preis 2012 worked among others . with Til Schweiger and Richard Roundtree in the film Joe and Max, was a comedy sketch artist on the Late Night with David Letterman Show and was hired as an entertainer for Bob Hope and Bon Jovi’s birthday parties.
Jeff Hess – “Master of all grimaces!” With irresistible charm and a grandiose energy, Jeff creates an unforgettable comedy experience through each of his characters .
“Madness has a name: Jeff Hess”
He needs no language and only a few props to portray the bizarre world of his
partly melancholic, partly absurdly clumsy hero on stage.
Trained at the famous Moscow State Circus School, where he learned the basics of the classical style of the Russian cloning school, ALEXEY MIRONOV became the predecessor of the type of clowning that combines traditional clowning techniques with modern theater.
Even as a very young clown, Alexey Mironov was able to demonstrate his comedic talent at numerous international festivals: Circus Festival in Tournai 1992, 18th Worldwide Festival of Circus of Tomorrow in Paris 1995, International Clown Festival in Moscow 2001, 3rd International Variety and Circus Festival in Dresden 2004, Slava’s Polunin “Congress of Fools” in Moscow
As a talented and promising young clown, he was discovered by the world-famous avant-garde circus Cirque du Soleil and for whose program »Quidam« took part in the North American Tour 1997-1999. Numerous engagements worldwide followed
: in the USA and Europe.
Mironov hardly speaks a word on stage. Although there is also a moment
when he actually speaks almost every language on earth, in one
report. But the language he knows best is that of gestures and
“Bon voyage!” is the end of a story without the beginning or exactly
the other way around. Once upon a time there was a small man, and another medium man, and another large man, and another super large man, and another tiny bone man… Mironov doesn’t play with masks, but with our identification cards.
