In the United States of the near future, everything has become a joke, and not just the economy. The nightly news is a comedy show. The movie theaters are full of slapstick animations. The president is a stand-up comedian. To get ahead in this world, you must have a high HQ. Those with low humor quotients are doomed to life on the margins.

Born without a sense of humor and incapable of acquiring one, Christopher Blank faces very dismal prospects. Yet, through several turns of fortune, he ends up bringing down a dictatorship and saving the world.

In this new one-man show, with a full cast via video, playwright and performer John Feffer portrays the fall and unlikely rise of a straight man in a comic world. If you want a vision of the future, George Orwell warned, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever. Clowntime offers a different but no less terrifying vision of the future: a cream pie striking a human face  forever.

'Feffer is a brilliant writer and performer' -- Washington City Paper.

Directed by Yury Urnov
