Bill Irwin is not your ordinary circus clown. Let me highly recommend Fool Moon with Bill Irwin and David Shiner. The humor is suitable for children, even, and they still had me clutching my sides. Between the highly physical comedy of Irwin and the confrontational razz of Shiner, I realized that I was actually seeing two people perform a Bugs Bunny/Daffy Duck routine— all it's Toon ridiculousness and unreal physics—and do it better than their animated counterparts. Incredible. Second-row seats helped, since there's plenty of audience participation; I was a plant for a camera gag that even caught me off guard.
