I laughed for two solid hours. The show only lasted an hour and a half. —Joel Siegel,  ABC- TV Avner Eisenberg enjoyed a generic childhood in Atlanta, Georgia. As a kid his passions were snakes and juggling. He wanted to be a doctor, but after a year as an honors chemistry and biology major his parents forced him into performing.

Applying the art of juggling to education, Avner attended four universities moving counter-clockwise around the United States, and ultimately earned a BA in theatre from the University of Washington in 1971. He studied in Paris with Jacques Lecoq for two years, and once, while street performing in Paris was arrested for buffoonery in public.

On returning to the United States Avner taught at Carlo Mazzone Clementi’s Dell’Arte School of Physical Comedy in California. Avner is greatly indebted to these two men: “Lecoq, who taught me everything I know, and Carlo who taught me the rest.”

Avner’s one-man show, Avner the Eccentric, was a hit of the 1984–1985 Broadway season. Avner’s new show, Exceptions to Gravity, is a reminder of the theatrical power that can reside in a single charismatic performer who touches the heart. A master of the art of physical comedy, Avner weaves a spell of poetic simplicity in a show of hilarious predicaments.  Hilarious, take no prisoners comedy. (In the unlikely event that prisoners are taken, they will be accorded full protection under the Geneva Convention.)
