Still working on that hot first release.



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. He was featured on WOW! The Most Awesome Acts On Earth, an ABC Television Special, and The Statler Brothers Show on TNN. Obviously he has little discretion. Michael was an Artist-in-Residence at Mabou Mines Theater Company in New York City, and has also been an Artist-in-Residence for the Drama Department of The Catholic University of America where he adapted and directed Alfred Jarry's Ubu Roi. In the 1999-2000 season, Michael was the star clown in the national tour of OOPS! The Big Apple Circus Stage Show directed by Oscar and Tony Award Winner Tony Walton. In 2006 until 2010, Michael had the pleasure of working with Mr. Walton on the Broadway bound production of Busker Alley starring Jim Dale and Glenn Close.

In 2010, Michael began working with award winning performer and director Robert Post. Their collaboration has resulted in the creation of Michael’s newest show, KING PONG’S PING PONG RODEO. Keep an eye out (in a glass, on the nightstand, or else at www.MichaelTrautman.com) for current activities and various shows.
