Fresh on the heels of my posts on George Campo, comic acrobat and eccentric dancer, comes this clip of the clown Kotini Junior. Born in Ukraine in 1967, he won a break dancing competition there in 1986, and has toured with Cirque du Soleil and Zirkus Roncalli.

Thanks for this one goes to Karen Gersch, who I should point out will be teaching "Balancing Bodies: Serious Comedy Partnering" at The (Very) Physical Comedy Institute this June.
