Comic Formulas with JANGO EDWARDS
During a clown's career he develops what is known as the "classic". Similar to a painter or sculptor, the performing artist creates various routines which, over the years, are groomed to near perfection. These acts are highlights of the performers repertoire which have become favorites of the player and the audiences over the years.
A performance of "Comic Formulas” is a fast moving selection of comic mimes and songs selected from over twelve hours of Jango's best. No two presentations are the same but comprise a flow of sketches and other items, which are chosen at the moment to best suit the occasion and environment of the particular performance situation. AND it is a very rare peek behind the scences!
The range of skills displayed during the production include mime, dance, magic, songs, acrobatics, music, comedy, stunts, revue, cabaret, poetry, juggling and puppetry.
Over more than fourty years, Jango Edwards has been creating new comedy shows that have toured Europe and the world, with an average of more than 200 performances a year. "Clown Power" - a big band extravaganza, "Pencilpeeni Zircus"- his freak show, "Nightmirrors" - a comic look at horror, "I Laugh You" - a clown history of man's past and future, "Klones" - a homage to Federico Fellini and the most recent presentations, "Mum" and "The Tony Balony Experience" is to mention only a few. The best sketches from these eventually find their way into "Comic Formulas" offering a rare opportunity, to the audience and theaters, to see an exhibition of Jango's master pieces by which his fame was obtained.
