As a clown Roger Joss tells loveable and funny stories and with his acts and reprises he draws the "golden thread" through a circus-show. In his theatre-shows he plays his own evening-filling solo-shows for a large or small audience. With his subtle and sometimes also weird humour he touches his audience deeply.
