Episode 1 -- Dean Evans: Professional Clown

Cool Jobs with Ethan Stern

Release Date: 07/08/2012

It's the Cool Jobs debut! To kick it off we have a special hour-long interview with Dean Evans, artistic director of Chicago Physical Theater and Chi Town Clown, as well as an all around clowning virtuoso. We chronicle how Dean went from being a small town Ohio trickster to being a student of mime grandmaster Marcel Marceau and an award winning solo performing artist. We also dive into the world of professional clowning, why they wear those red noses, how Sacha Baron Cohen brought French clowning to the mainstream, what lurks behind the secret doors in Cirque De Soleil’s Montreal headquarters, and much more! This episode is brought to you by Johnston and Johnston's Baby Tanning Oil.
