“Demented, charming and brilliant” is how Allentown’s Morning Call described
Dan Kamin, who created the physical comedy sequences for the award-winning
films Chaplin and Benny and Joon, and trained Robert Downey, Jr. and Johnny
Depp for their acclaimed starring performances in those popular films. He also
trained Rob McClure, the actor currently winning raves for his performance as
Chaplin in the new Broadway musical about the comedian.
Kamin’s own comedic skills will be on display when he offers a guided tour of the enchanted
comic world of Charlie Chaplin when he presents Funny Bones—The Comedy of Charlie
Chaplin. In this unique hybrid of entertainment and education Kamin will deconstruct the work
of the comic genius with film clips, live demonstrations of physical comedy, and lots of audience
participation. The centerpiece of the evening will be a classic Chaplin short with live musical
accompaniment by well-known silent film accompanist Peter Tavalin. This extraordinary two-
hour program will change the way you look at comedy.
