Drew "The Dramatic Fool" Richardson Coming to ARTS/West

Come check out What the Fool?!?, an original silent comedy written and performed by Drew “The Dramatic Fool” Richardson, this Sunday, March 17!

An Ohio University alum who also studied in Paris, Drew is an actor, clown, and sometimes-instructor who specializes in devising solo acts for showcase at theaters and festivals around the country. Inspired by the circus, vaudeville, and silent film traditions, he has crafted no fewer than five of these plays, including The Psychology of Clumsiness and the acclaimed Help! Help! I Know This Title is Long, But Somebody’s Trying to Kill Me! He has also served as Artist-in-Residence for the Chicago Park District, created a series of short silent films now showing in major theaters across the U.S., and currently teaches theater workshops to both kids and adults.

What the Fool?!? is Drew’s most recent invention. A tale about a bumbling office worker who attends a theater and finds himself the star of the show, the play explores the creative potential of foolish actions and has been met with laughter and rave reviews from the Quest Visual Theatre, among others. And because every performance is redesigned to fit the space in which it takes place, each is sure to be one of a kind.

For more information about Drew Richardson go to Otherwise, look out for his “How to Think Like a Fool” video series on YouTube, and enjoy this excerpt from Help! Help! below.
