MTL Clown Fest - Tim and Joe present... Joe and Time

Tim and Joe

Company website

Bilingual.

Tim and Joe, two eccentric clowns discover each other for the first time yet they have been friends for ages. They contrast in height, look, manners and rhythm , at 6’5” and 4’11” the comedy goes right over their heads. An empty stage with a clothes rack, a microphone, a ukulele…the simplicity allows their imagination to play in what ever setting they want. A frame with out a painting becomes a gallery, the clothes rack becomes a shopping spree, the Ukulele becomes a ....Ukulele. Combining the influences of Samuel Becket and the good looks of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore they share an absurd ballad through various styles from visual comedy and slapstick to singing harmonious hymns as priests. Just when it seems to make sense they make a left turn or a U turn or park illegally.

Created by and starring Tim and Joe

Founded in 2016, the mandate of The MTL Clown Fest is to create space for all levels of performers to showcase original works that fall under the Clown, Bouffon or Physical Theatre spectrum. Included in the mandate we welcome people of all genders, but are making an effort to increase representation of women-identified, gender-non-conforming and trans performers. With this in mind, we will make an effort to strive for equal and proportionate representation in our space. We are dedicated to cultivating a multi-cultural program, welcoming French, English and Nonsensical Clown Language, as well as a vast multitude of other cultural Tricksters.

Tickets can be purchase online or by telephone Tuesday through Saturday from 2pm-6pm.
Please note that same day sales are by telephone only.

Coming Soon

The clock is ticking: Morning Post editor Walter Burns pulls every trick in the book to stop his ex-wife and star reporter from leaving town forever to marry another man - and save an inmate headed for death row along the way.

This screwball comedy/drama started life as the stage play The Front Page before becoming a popular film starring Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant. Snowglobe Theatre's production is an original stage adaptation of both by director Peter Giser.

Using specific movement and improvisational exercises the body will become the genesis for character and story development. Throughout this workshop the rules of clown emerge giving participants a fundamental understanding of clown, and a deeper awareness of their own performance and creation skills.

Sruti Islam & Jeremie Romain dramatically/comedically read their favorite scenes from theatre & film.
