Director Biography - Brown Frown the Clown

Realizing his comedy career was going nowhere, Brown Frown the Clown quit drinking and started a rock band called The Kisses. Their live shows were plot-heavy musicals disguised as punk sets so they could trick people into enjoying theatre. The band broke up in November 2020 and again in April 2022. Always the opportunist, Brown made a short film about the band's second breakup.
