Jeff Raz as a talking head.

Happened to find this video of Jeff Raz speaking at the Commonwealth Club of California in June of 2008.

Jeff was a teacher of mine at Dell’arte, founder of the San Francisco Clown Conservatory, and recently returned from a year-long tour as the lead clown (The Dead Clown) in Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo.

There’s a lot of good stuff that Jeff says about his theory of clown teaching, comedy, and he also teaches a couple a clown slap to a bunch of people who are basically sitting down.

The video is kind of long, esp. the two minute introduction of Jeff, but worth it.
