The Actor's Craft: A Crash Course in Clowning With Bill Irwin

Watch the Tony-winning performer develop a wide-range of physical movement with only a few props.

Bill Irwin is one of the most impressive performers in the business. Dramatically, he has wowed audiences with stirring turns in plays like Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (for which he won a Tony Award) and Waiting for Godot (in separate productions, he's played both Lucky and Vladimir), among others. On the polar opposite end of the spectrum, he's made us laugh uproariously as a gifted clown and physical comedian in Old Hats and Fool Moon. Now finishing up a run in Irish Repertory Theatre's On Beckett, Irwin recently gave us a crash course in physical comedy that's bound to give you a trippingly good laugh while also stoking your imagination.
