CLOWN: Avner

[Avner's web site - link in new window]

Avner Eisenberg was described by New York Magazine as "a clown for the thinking man." His show Avner the Eccentric was a hit of the 1984-1985 Broadway season. He appeared on Broadway in Ghetto and The Comedy of Errors, but he is probably best known for his portrayal of the scene stealing holy man in the film The Jewel of the Nile. Avner continues to tour his one-man show internationally and has won awards at the Edinburgh Festival, the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival, and the Festival Internacional de Pallassos in Barcelona. He won the first prize at the Arosa Humor Festival in Switzerland. He recently won the "Snow Star" for comedy in Switzerland, and the "Lachmesse" award in Germany. Avner starred as Vladimir in Waiting for Godot at the Portland Stage Company. Avner studied with Jacques Lecoq from 1971-1974.
