Dearly Departed

Dearly Departed

Karim Muasher & Animal Engine

New York, NY

A clown show about grieving for the whole family.

Physical comedian Karim Muasher plays a discombobulated widower trying to deliver a eulogy. One mistake leads to another, taking him on an epic adventure from the depths of the ocean to the kaleidoscope of outer space. A silly and heartfelt exploration of grief for the whole family.
