Seattle Vaudeville Duo
This Seattle Vaudeville Duo is a pair of funny ladies performing slapstick, music, and dance in a bright, cartoony style. They met as students at the San Francisco Clown Conservatory in 2005. They combined forces with two other women to start a clown ensemble. They named themselves after their beloved teacher and new circus pioneer, and set off across the Atlantic to debut in the Czech Republic.
Since then this Seattle Vaudeville Duo has created and performed in Europe, the United States and Mexico, presenting their irreverent and upbeat comedy in multiple languages. In 2012, they began working as a duo. They formed a comedy team Duo, and set off south of the border to debut at an international circus festival in Mexico. They are currently based on the West Coast.
