Festival Mondial Du cirque De Demain
"We had the pleasure of seeing Donimo the silent comic performing his comedy routine. He presents a Hulot image of an act struggling with wonky props, accidents and innocent ineptitude, with every unfortunate happening a complete surprise to himself. This is a delightful routine of pure variety & Gentle humor"
Alan Saddler, Entertainment Critique
“Donimo engenders sympathy in his most apologist comic persona, and he is of course, Hysterically funny. A sort of cross between Stan laurel and Buster Keaton, Donimo is extremely gifted and very special"
"I have known Donimo since the very beginning of his career. I have watched him work and grow. He was always an artist who as a magician could astound and astonish audiences and as a comic would have people rolling around with laughter"
