Banana Man

April 15, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Banana Man (a one man show).

Performed by Michael Galligan

Directed by Bailey Nassetta

Is it man? Or is it banana? In this solo clown show, Banana Man is stuck in a box with only one hour before he ripens. Performed by Michael Galligan, Banana employs stand-up, dance, physical comedy, live music, magic, audience participation, and sadness to explore what it means to be put in a box. Michael Galligan is a clown, producer, and teaching artist based in Brooklyn. His work has been developed at Irondale Center, The Deep End, 59E59 Theater, the Upper Jay Art Center, ChaShaMa, Cincy Fringe, FringePVD, and ZOO at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He is a member of the Slugfest theater collective, a lead teaching artist with the Irondale Center, a co-producer of Clown Gym’s variety shows, and a co-creator and producer of PUNCHLOCK, a strictly timed variety show with punishments. Bailey Nassetta is a Brooklyn based theater director and teaching artist. She is currently studying to receive her Masters in Educational Theater in Colleges and Communities at NYU.
