It's clown night at The Activist Kitchen! Two shows for one night of crazy hilarious silly comedy!
Tonight! (a clown who just wants to be loved?)
The struggle of a clown who just wants to be loved. It might sound poetic, but it's mostly plain stupid.
Created and performed by Andrea Barello
Andrea Barello is an Italian clown who for obscure reasons is based in Los Angeles. After a spirited run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Tonight! comes back to Los Angeles, where it was conceived and developed. It's a show where a clown who doesn't speak English tries everything he knows to get the only thing he wants. To be loved?

Game Show! Game Show! Game Show!: A Games Show
An hour-long interactive performance and competition, Game Show! Game Show! Game Show! pits half the audience against the other. Participants win points for their teams with feats ranging from answering trivia questions to dance battles or maybe by just being the tallest. Other games involve real-time tech integrations, like racing Mario Kart but by committee, so charge your cell phones! Games build and overlap until the show verges on chaos. Witness an unforgettable show hailed by one audience member as “One of the best shows I’ve ever seen!”
Created and performed by Joe Pisanzio
The madcap host of Game Show! Game Show! Game Show! is Penfield native and RIT New Media Interactive Development Alumnus, Joe Pisanzio. Joe takes his knowledge of immersive development and smashes it together with his training in clown. The result is a wild, ever-changing interactive performance. Joe, currently residing in Los Angeles, developed this show while living in a California desert with a band of cutting-edge technologists. It premiered in April 2023 at the Bombay Beach Biennale. Over the past ten years, Joe has received mentorship in clown from world-renowned masters including Phillipe Gaulier, Aitor Basauri, and Paola Coletto.
