The Wonderful European Clown – Dimitri Performing his act – “Le Porteur”

Dimitri told an interviewer in 2012 “I think you are born a clown, I have always loved to make people laugh.”


He was a juggler, acrobat and physical comedian who delighted audiences around the world.  

Dimitri once said, “All people like to laugh and a humor that is innocent, situational and kind defies cultural and national borders.  If something is truly funny, it will always be funny.”

This is a video of the amazing and wonderfully funny clown Dimitri performing his one man show – “Le Porteur” in 1988.


Dimitri the Clown was inducted into the Clown Hall of Fame in 1995 and in 1973, was awarded the Grock prize in Europe.

He died in the summer of 2016 at the age of 80 leaving his wife and two children.
