A master of the art of physical comedy, Avner the Eccentric weaves a spell of poetic simplicity in a show of hilarious predicaments. Avner has appeared on and off Broadway with his hit show Exceptions to Gravity. He played the endearing Holy Man, The Jewel, in the Michael Douglas film The Jewel of the Nile, and performed as a ventriloquist on Broadway in Ghetto. His dummy was nominated for a Tony Award. Avner’s show defies the barriers of language and culture and has toured extensively in the U.S. and abroad.

 

“Here is what Avner the Eccentric does best: he reduces his audience to laughter and giggles and applause.”—The New York Times
