Change, Updates, Poem. Opportunities, Laughter

Hi everyone,

Are you ready for the change of seasons? 

How about changes in your life and career? 

Big change coming my way. 


The 2022-2023 school year and 2023 summer reading

will be my last for Comic Mime Shows in Schools & Libraries

Summer 2023 will be my 40th year. It has brought me tremendous joy to see thousands of smiling faces and hear their roaring laughter echo around the world as they witness the art of mime. 

In 2023 I will be focusing more on staff stress relief programs for adults, online laughter, mindfulness & mime workshops and public speaking engagements. 


Do you know of any schools or libraries that would like my educational comic mime shows before I go? 

Here are the links:

A poem to help us through


I am a survivor. 

The storms came in heavy and hard. One after another they came. I was knocked about and tossed into the deep of the deep. I swam slowly and steadily through the darkest of nights.

In a dense, dreary fog, I crawled up onto the shore. I collapsed. All I could do was breathe. Just, breathe. No thoughts. No anything. Just breathe. 




I thought I was alone. All alone. Then, I felt the sun on my skin. I opened my eyes. I opened my heart. I opened my being. 

You were there. 

You, were there. I felt life return to me. Light, lit up my eyes, my smile. I felt light, love and new aliveness in every cell.

I could laugh. I could fly. 

Storms come and go. 

I am a survivor. 

So are you. 

Grateful we are on this journey together.

-Robert Rivest
