Mr. Chris

A great clown holds a mirror up to their audience and shows them their follies. No script, no agenda just a shared moment in time. Clowns are truth seekers they have a responsibility to illustrate just how ridiculous humanity can be by poking fun at their own flaws.

James Jordan
James Jordan fell in love with vaudeville as a young boy watching the Muppet Show. The music and comedy combined with magic, juggling and the death defying stunts from Gonzo the great enchanted and inspired the young hyperactive boy. Two circus schools, three theatre companies and lifetime of street performance later he was finally ready to step onto the boards to be the vaudevillian he always wanted to be. Bad news, Vaudeville had been dead for 50 years. The only way to reach his lifelong dream was to create his own one-man Vaudeville variety review.
