Fraser Hooper


Twenty-one years ago Fraser Hooper gave up a glittering career in Menswear to follow the Red Nose. He has since developed an international career playing Theatres and Festivals in Europe, Australasia, Canada, Korea, Singapore and Japan delighting audiences of all ages with his unique style of contemporary clowning. He is a much sought after clown tutor and has taught at circus schools, theatre festivals and for businesses across the globe and was for twelve years the resident clown teacher at Circus Space London. He has directed shows for puppeteers, clowns, actors, comedians, musicians and circus artists and has won several international awards for his own work. At present there are no plans to go back to Menswear.
