Moisture Festival - Performer Interviews - Tom Murphy

Knock 'em down, drag 'em out, laugh till you cry slapstick sketch comedy. Think: Buster Keaton meets Robin Williams. He co-founded two international touring comedy troupes: Mountain Mime and Klown Shoes. For the past 20 years he has performed and taught around the world. He was a winner at the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain in Paris and twice awarded "Artist of the Year Award" by Kuenstler Magazine in Germany. He has appeared on Broadway in his solo production called MetaMURPHosis. For the past 15 years he has been touring in Europe where he was dubbed "The Chaos Poet." He has been a mainstay in the Variete scene in Germany, chiefly the GOP Varietes in Hannover, Essen, Bad Oeyenhausen, Munster and Munich.

Tom Murphy is a Moisture Festival veteran having performed at the festival several times during our nine year run. He was last here in Seattle for the festival 2 years ago and quickly became a audience favorite. We are so pleased to have him back.
