Grup the clown will delight and inspire on his “wanderings” at Family Fun Day!


Phil Koole has been delighting public audiences internationally with his clown Grup for 5 years. Having found a unique specialty in public activation clowning, Phil developed his Grup the Wanderer routine, which brings an array of clowning experience to the table; award-nominated theatre creations, busking experience, and professional therapeutic clown history. All of which combine to create a spontaneous and joyfully intimate theatrical experience.

Phil Koole is a therapeutic clown in long term care centres across Toronto. He’s clowned in festivals and cabarets all over Toronto and he created and performed Halapatooloo, a duo clown show in 2012 (Outstanding Ensemble, NOW Magazine, Toronto). 2013 through now Phil has performed in public spaces internationally, honing his skills.
