Ep. 11 – John Gilkey – A Fool’s Idea the Podcast

“A Fool’s Idea” – the Podcast, is a more in depth look into the lives of some of the artists, performers, teachers and clowns that we have or will featured in the documentary project.

In this episode we talk with, the eccentric John Gilkey. You may know him from his highly acclaimed lead roles in major Cirque du Soleil spectacles like Quidam, Dralion, Varekai, & Iris.

I paid him a visit and we sat down on his patio in the Hollywood hills to talk about physical comedy and clown. However, what developed from our conversation were a few unexpected twists and turns in the John Gilkey narrative, I learned more then I could of hoped for about the passion, philosophy, hopes, dreams and future goals of this incredibly inspiring artist.

(We would also like to give a shout out to Jessi Hoffschildt for posting a few inspirational questions to the Facebook page for this interview, THANKS)
