I am an actor, comedian, mime artist and clown. I started performing in Berlin back in May 1982 and since then I have been making people laugh all over Europe and a large part of the rest of the World.
I was born on July 24th, 1961 in the City of Genova, Italy. My dream as a child was to travel all over the World and to know all kind of different people, Countries and cultures. At the age of eighteen I've decided that I was not going to become an optician like my father, so I quit the study and started to play music in the street. Acoustic guitar with armonica and kazoo was my “one man band” equipment. I traveled Italy and Europe as a street musician for about two years, ending up in Berlin, where I lived for five years.
In Berlin I started to play in music clubs and restaurants but I was not happy with what I was doing. The music I really love is jazz and I was not able to play any jazz on my guitar. I went to a circus school to learn mime and pantomime... but after four lessons I was bored. Classic mime was not really my thing. So I “signed up” at the very best possible school: the street!
