Josephine Simple presents
The Man Who Doesn’t Exist
With voice over performance by Ryan William Downey
An excerpt from Josephine Simple’s upcoming one person show about how gender makes no sense and neither does life nor does.
Josephine Simple is a comedian, journalist (Slate, The New Yorker), and marketing consultant (Kantar). Their performances combine comedy, street dance, fake philosophy, and clowning. Zen monks have described Simple’s work as “total mind body transformation” and “Is it still comedy if it kind of breaks your heart?”
