Discovering the Clown, or the Funny Book of Good Acting
by Christopher Bayes and Virginia Scott




Overview -

"Christopher Bayes is a master, an extraordinary visionary who has done more to liberate young American actors over the last two generations than I can possibly express. His classes in Clowning are philosophical manifestos; the power of his laughter inextricable from the depth of his spirit. This book is a treasure. Nothing can replace the experience of being in the room with a master teacher, but this practical, playful, brilliant book is the next best thing. Read it. It is indispensable." --Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director, The Public Theater

Discovering the Clown, or The Funny Book of Good Acting is a unique glimpse into the wild world of the Clown, unveiling "the playful self, the unsocialized self, the naive self...the big stupid who just wants to have some fun with the audience." An essential guide for artists and actors wanting to set free the messy and hilarious Clown within.
