While clown shows are a staple of Vaudeville, we haven’t seen anything quite like this before. Of course, what’s more Vaudevillian than that? Novelty acts found fame on the Vaudeville stage.
Bio: Jean-Paul Mullét was born in 1726, died in 1747, then washed up onshore 100 years later.
Now for over 16 years, Mullet has been a fixture of the Toronto comedy scene, making him one of this city’s oldest acts. In 2015, he was voted Toronto’s ‘Best Male Improviser’ in the NOW Magazine Readers’ Choice Poll.
Mullet appears regularly in the Toronto Festival of Clowns and Lunacy Cabaret, the longest running circus cabaret in Toronto. The tragicomedy Mullet’s Make-a-Play premiered in the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival to rave reviews. In 2012, he headlined at The People’s Improv Theatre in NYC to a packed house. Mullet’s Dinosaur Adventure, a family friendly and educational show, sold out at the 2013 Toronto International Circus Festival. From 2011 to 2016, he hosted the hit Mullet’s Night Show, a live comedy variety show done in the style of a late night television talk show. You can see Mullet next in his new play, Mullet’s Ghost Story, every night June 29-July 10 at the 2016 Toronto Fringe.
Television credits include Zoink’d (YTV), the Canadian Comedy Award winning This Movie Sucks (CHCH), and Ed & Red’s Night Party (CityTV/G4), where he was a regular guest star.
