About Ben and Clint…

Ben and Clint first met in 2003 and soon began creating Clown shows together. They joined Lightwire in 2004, under Artistic Director Tony Kishawi, touring Commedia and Clown shows all over Australia. Aside from a passion for Commedia dell’Arte, together they bring to their classes a great deal of experience performing, devising and teaching this age-old (yet still relevant and hilarious) comic style. Clint is also a stilt performer with his own stilt company, Manoeuvre, and has worked and toured with QTC as an actor and workshop facilitator. Ben is also a writer, with several works produced for the professional stage, and Drama teacher.
