Résumé :
The Pickle clowns have performed to great acclaim with Cirque du Soleil, Circus Flora, and the Pickle Family Circus in dance concerts, one-person shows, and plays by Beckett, Brecht, Fo, O’Casey, Shakespeare, Jonson, and Molière. For the first time outside a circus ring, the Pickle clowns reveal all about their popular comedy acts, their eccentric dances, and the state of the circus in the United States and abroad.

This volume offers conversations with the clowns themselves, Lorenzo Pickle (Larry Pisoni), Willy the Clown (Bill Irwin), Mr. Sniff (Geoff Hoyle), Queenie Moon (Joan Mankin), Ralph Deliberate (Donald Forrest), Ms. Wombat (Andrea Snow), Pino (Diane Wasnak), and Razz (Jeff Raz). Also interviewed are Ramona the Tap-Dancing Gorilla (circus choreographer Kimi Okada) and artistic director and choreographer Tandy Beal. Four clown acts are included to best demonstrate both the unique humor and craft of the Pickle clowns. [editor summary]
