For over 35 years Doug Berky has toured his performance work of physical comedy, mask theatre, and storytelling for audiences of all ages. In an encore visit to Furman, Berky presents a range of performance styles from his physical comedy “schtick” to heartwarming world tales told with masks hand-crafted by Berky.

Doug Berky Theatre reflects the styles of the commedia dell’arte, vaudeville, mask and mime theatre, and the influence of such theatre greats as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Carol Burnette, Red Skelton, Marcel Marceau and Tony Montanaro.
