Michael Zerphy

Michael Zerphy invites you to explore a topsy-turvy world of comedy and chaos where the commonplace becomes majestic and every day holds the promise of a new look at something old. With his zany style and participatory humor, Michael blends physical comedy, storytelling and clowning into a delightful program for all ages. Performances available for families, community groups and schools. School performances include: The Wealth of Health...Free for All! and Choices to Grow By! all appropriate for K-6 audiences. Cahoots is a school performance for for all ages and Zany Acts is a family performance for all ages. School programs come with teaching guides for post performance activities.

Michael's performances have taken him not only around New England but across the United States and Europe as well. He has performed in hundreds of schools, libraries, theaters, camps, and private organizations.
