Master of Slapstick Bob Berky to Take the Stage
Bob Berky, a world traveling master of slapstick comedy, will bring his suitcase of tricks to the Vital Express Center at College of the Canyons at 2 p.m. on Sunday Nov. 6.
Using only physical clowning, the power of suggestion and the somehow understandable blurting of a kazoo, Berky delivers ninety minutes of sheer physical comedy, eccentric characters, and deep belly laughs. "Laughter it was. Unadulterated, uninhibited roars of hysteria" is what Berky is capable of creating, according to the Hong Kong Festival Review.
Winner of the OBIE and The Kennedy Center's New American Plays Award, Berky has traveled and performed as a solo artist around the world. Berky has appeared at New York's Dance Theatre Workshop, Lincoln Theater, The Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Off-Broadway with Michael Moschen. Berky has also made some notable T.V. appearances on PBS, Canal Plus, MTV, Disney and Nickelodeon.
Berky has also taught at many universities and theatres such as the Juilliard School, Brandeis University, Smith College, and the North Carolina School for the Arts.
Besides directing the movement for Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Festival's production of "Twelfth Night," he has also worked as a movemnt coach for Jeff Goldblum, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Gregory Hines.
