King Pong’s King Kong Rodeo
AKA: Michael Trautman
After four years of college, Michael decided that the legal profession was not going to be much fun, so he left school and started looking for something to do that would be. Since then, he has been having fun performing throughout the world. Variously identified as a visual comic, performance artist, new vaudevillian, mime (gasp), physical comedian, storyteller, magician, and fool, he claims only to be a clown...and not a very traditional clown at that. He has appeared in such prestigious venues as the New York International Festival of Clown Theater, Festival D’Ete in Quebec, the General Jackson Showboat at Opryland USA, the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, and The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
