I have done presentations as weird characters, with puppets or just entertaining. It all started 2000 for Impro-X and Scheiterhaufen, two improvisation theater groups. 
My favorite experience was in Bogota, where I presented a crazy varieté of numbers as a angry mad man with a gun who was taught by his therapist to smile more in order to increase his social acceptance :-) - psychological tight rope balancing ;-)



Mad Circus Moderation "Zirkusdirektor"

2014 I was invited to present the varieté "Mad Circus" in the Papierfabrik Graz (Austria). Happily jumping into the rich clothes collection of Kai I found myself some nice agressive english speaking character.
But when numers turned out to be less nuts then expected I ran to find new costumes and added two brothers to my first character, a charming french and a happy swiss one.

Presentation of varieté "Wiener Melange" 2009, Vienna

2009 I presented with my own mouthpuppet the varieté "Viennese Mix" in Vienna. I even showed some scenes from the piece that I had been working on, giving my role to the puppet and playing my partners myself.
