Red Bastard unleashes a pompous theatrical master class in this critically-acclaimed Bouffon show. His mission: to charm, disarm, shock and seduce. His target: pop culture, politics and you.
Red Bastard is pure Id, slapped with a coat of red and pumped full of hot air. This half man/half demon from the subconscious realm is here to take the piss out of the audience by disguising himself as an elitist movement teacher instructing us in the “theater of life.”
An incredible mover, master of improvisation, and self proclaimed “provocateur,” Red Bastard covers every inch of the stage, moving his enormous red belly and ass with the grace of a nymph.
Audiences should be prepared for anything to happen in this interactive show, in which Red Bastard engages the audience in raw conversation, uncovering ridiculous and disturbing truths.
If clown is complete vulnerability, Red Bastard is its antithesis. With exquisite monstrosity, he employs charm and biting wit to playfully manipulate the audience. Lines will be crossed and laughs will be had. His bold wit and physical prowess have been lauded by critics and audiences alike.
Marvel as this impish ton of fun mocks the institutions we all hold dear!
Red Bastard has performed to sold out audiences at Just for Laughs as part of “LaClique”, the Spiegeltent in NYC, The Dublin Fringe Festival, PS 122, HERE, Joe’s Pub, the Orion Teatern- Stockholm, Cankarjev Dom -Ljubljana, Slovenia, and the American Repertory Theater- Boston Massachusetts among others.
