Clowning

DR.S and G postcard 1

Tristan Cunningham grew up in the Circus, starting when she was ten years old under the direction of Circus Smirkus. She was always around clowns but didn’t start clowning herself until the age of twenty two, already engaged in a variety of theatrical performances. She likes to think of clowning as more then just¬†large shoes and squirting flowers but as extreme, larger than life characters. She has clowned in the Bay Area at The San Francisco Clown Cabaret, The Literary Clown Foolery Cabaret, Bay Area Children’s Theater Variety Show, and is currently a part-time clown under the Medical Clown Project and Circus Bella.

Catch her every other month in Literary Clown Foolery at Alley Cat Bookstore (3036 24th St. in SF)
