Clowning Act: Baby Electra
Baby Electra is Diane Wasnak's precocious inner child. In this “baby’s” search for her papa, Baby Electra discovers Papa (a real audience member) has been in the audience the entire time! After involving this lucky audience member in fun and games onstage, she realizes she’s a bit rusty on how to ride her little kiddy bike. Fortunately, Papa is there to assist, as any good father would, by demonstrating a bicycle lesson. Equal parts Lucille Ball and June Cleaver, this artist’s unique physicality and skill are demonstrated as she kicks bowls onto her head while riding a bicycle backwards, seated on the handlebars. Meanwhile, Papa “shakes his booty” to James Brown while the dynamic duo brings the house down with this delightful and witty performance.
