"Michael Trautman has helped me to grow immensely as a clown. Not only is he extremely talented and experienced, but he shares his passion for clowning and mime with ease. He was instrumental in the creation of both of my Smirkus audition acts, and each time I was impressed with how patient and dedicated he was."
