Unleash your inner Bouffon in an explosion of fun that turns life’s excrement into comedy gold! How is Bouffon different than Clown? The World laughs at the Clown, but the Bouffon laughs at the World! Imagine a wild-eyed pack of outsiders. These outsiders have ecstatic pleasure to mock anything and everything. Ridiculous, mischievous, confronting and poetic, these tricksters ride the line between comic fun and uncomfortable truth.
