Eric Davis is…

“Very Very Funny”
New York Times

“One of the hottest, funniest performance artists on the scene today”

“Gifted, Original and Gutsy”

Curt Dempster- Artistic Director, Ensemble Studio Theatre

“Extremely contagious… Davis puts everything he has into his character.”
– Village Voice

“Brave and enchanting..an intimate performance that sweeps up the audience lovingly into (Davis’s) world…. ”

Here comes a clown show unlike any you have ever experienced..

In this show, Eric Davis stars as a bone-thin cantankerous clown, whose neurotic endeavors run the gamut of comic expression.   Wildly impish one moment, pathetically gutless the next, he answers the call to an epic adventure only to find himself stranded in a cave for 100,000 years.  Surrounded by the skeletons of failed attempts, he must now conquer a disembodied voice as this unlikely hero fends off monsters, struggles to make a name for himself and quests to find the Glove of Never Ending Awesomeness.
World-renowned Canadian director, Sue Morrison, is the co-creator of some of Europe, North and South America’s hottest, edgiest clown shows.  Together, New York clown Eric Davis and Ms. Morrison are on the forefront of a movement which aims to bring the sacred return of clowning to contemporary audiences
