Crocker, Keith HAL ROACH - Hollywood's Hidden King of Comedy Media- Film,
Media- Video,
Performing Arts- Clowning
Hal Roach was certainly a well know producer, but so few realize that this man gave us some of the best comedic acts that Hollywood had to offer. From his humble roots being born to Irish immigrant parents in Elmira NY, to his journey to California to become a successful prospector, Hal Roach himself never envisioned becoming the King of Comedy. But he did, giving us Harold Loyd, Laurel and Hardy, The Little Rascals and so many more. This program focuses on Roach's early career and creative output, and will use 16mm comedy shorts to exemplify Roach's output.

Engel, David WIZARD ACADEMY! Performing Arts- Clowning,
Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Other
Professor Hackensneezes Wizard Academy is an antic day in the life of a substitute professor of Magic. A zany mixture of Jerry Lewis and Harry Potter, perfect for Fall programs. Uncommon and refreshing physical comedy which features eccentric props, antic bubble-play, real magic, double-take inducing puppetry and fantastic musical scoring. My acts are like two shows in one with a sit-down stage show paired with an on-their-feet participatory segment that engages the whole audience no matter the size. In generalĀ I stress golden rules in a non-gender specific age appropriate and wholly zany atmosphere. My costumes are theater-grade quality, am insured and have a fantastic sound system. David Engel is a full-time family entertainer with twenty years experience, a clown doctor with the Big Apple Circus' renowned in-hospital Clown Care Program and featured in New York Magazines BEST OF NY: KIDS!
