Vincent Kreutz: Clown and Sound man
I have a great appreciation of the great comedians of the modern T.V. era, to include but not limited to Lucille Ball, Dick Van Dyke, John Ritter, Dom DeLuise, Robin Williams. I especially enjoy the zany or crazy aspects of their performances as well as the physical humor. The artistic work of the greatest mime of all time Marcel Marceau has been a great inspiration.
