Summer Kickoff: Alex the Jester

Monday June 24, 2013
7:00 PM until 7:45 PM

At Bellingham High School auditorium. No registration required. It’s easy to imagine a court jester – the colorful trickster with bells jingling from his floppy hat. But have you ever seen one perform in real time? A rare treat, indeed! Enter the world of the Wise Fool, and take an inspiring journey to Medieval times. 

Alex the Jester prefers action to words, from mind bending sight gags to amazing stunts (see video).When he finally clears his throat to speak, his audience is captivated. Rolling off his tongue is a funny sounding gibberish tongue called Grammelot. This universal language has been his ticket to The Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, The Singapore Arts Festival, Japan’s World Performance Festival, and theaters from Alaska to Australia.

For families. Kick off Bellingham Library’s summer reading program in style!!
