Julia Masli is an award-winning clown from Estonia, based in London.
In 2023 Julia set out to solve audience's problems in her serious show "ha ha ha ha ha ha ha". Read about it here: The New York Times.
"ha ha ha ha ha ha ha" is a serious show, but it was nominated for "Best Comedy Show" award in the 2023 Edinburgh Comedy Awards and named number 1 Comedy show of 2023 by The Guardian. Julia finds it upsetting that her serious show is getting recognition as a comedy show... It´s a serious show and she´s trying to instead win the Nobel Prize, a prize awarded to those who have conferred the greatest benefit to humankind. The show will run for 4 weeks in winter 2024 at London's Soho Theatre.
Julia's debut solo clown show CHOOSH!, about a migrant's struggles in the United States, won Telegraph's 'Best Sad Clown Award'.
Julia's first Edinburgh show LEGS with The Duncan Brothers, a very serious show about legs, won The Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality in 2019. Legs are important.
Julia has taught at Ecole Philippe Gaulier, various UK drama schools and Universities as well as her clown WORKSHOPS.
