HUMOR ABUSE is the unique story of Pisoni’s upbringing as the youngest member of the Pickle Family Circus, the Bay Area’s tiny big top that entertained thousands of people worldwide and launched the careers of several legendary performers. Filled with the clowning that Pisoni learned at his father’s knee, and the wonder, heartache and complexity of stepping into (and out of) his father’s shoes, HUMOR ABUSE shows that running away with the circus isn’t always all fun and games.
