Performing as an actor in the currently running show FRAGMENTS (Directed by Peter Brook) at The Baryshnikov Arts Center, Jos Houben has been around the world with his one-man show 'The Art of Laughter' besides directing other shows and teaching at The Ecole Jacques LeCoq.
I attended his one-man show "The Art of Laughter" a few months ago at Alliance Francaise and enjoyed the delirious joy of learning at the same time as laughing.
I met Jos at the BAC and we did this wonderful interview in his dressing room.
