Jeff & Buttons in “Neon Lights” at the People’s Theatre 1/31/11 (NYC)
I saw this back at the 2010 NY Clown Theatre Festival at the Brick Theatre and I can highly recommend it. You can read my review here. You can also see some photographs and a video interview by Photographer to the Clowns Jim Moore on his site Vaudevisuals.
Jeff and Buttons have TONS of new material and now they have their own show so this should be a cinch. Their comedy harkens back to the golden age of Vaudeville (1925-late 1925) with updated and reworked laughs. Their new PoMoVau show, Neon Lights is all you need to know about Vaudeville and ol’ timey crack ’em ups. They’re also idiots. Chris Manley (Buttons) is a member of “New Excitement” and has appeared on Comedy Central. Jeff Seal is a four-time Golden Clown Nose nominee and has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman. Both of them co-wrote and acted in Kill Me Loudly: A Clown Noir.
Directed by Danny Manley. 60 min.
