Saturday night I went to the new Cirque du Soleil show "Kooza" currently running in San Jose.
Written and directed by one of America's all-time great clowns, David Shiner, this show is more circus-y than other recent Cirque shows. I really enjoyed the emphasis on clowning and human daring-do.
You got your juggler, you got your unicyclist with a lady standing on his head, you got your Wheel of Death, you got your tightrope walker, you got your teeter boards, you got your guy balancing on 10 stacked up chairs, etc.
Even though I only bought my ticket on Thursday I was lucky enough to snag a seat front row, center.
You haven't seen contortionists until you've seen them contort from Row AA.
