In a night of spiritual-political satire and activist entertainment, Clements ignites conscience by celebrating freedom of expression and the power of the human heart. A former director of Amnesty International called Clements “one of the most compelling voices of our times.” Critics have described Alan’s spoken word performances as “existentially cathartic,” “enthralling and hallucinogenic”, “a brilliant deconstruction of spiritual and cultural propaganda that addresses head-on the insanity of war, climate change and the commercialization of consciousness.”
As a former Buddhist monk in dictatorship-ravaged-Burma and a journalist in areas of extreme conflict, including the former Yugoslavia, Clements riffs on issues of violence and nonviolence, compassion and greed, servitude and freedom, meditation and indoctrination, from his personal experience and a rare satirical humor, while giving audiences a captivating expression on how WE — the PEOPLE can safeguard ourselves from spiritual and political propaganda. And in so doing, relearn active citizenry by liberating our own minds from fear, apathy, and cynicism.
“Blend Noam Chomsky, Lenny Bruce, and Terrence McKenna and you get Alan Clements – the most spiritually astute humorist in America today.” Jon Woodhouse, Entertainment writer, Maui News
Alan Clements’ shows are “a scorching comedic romp through the world of spiritual and political indoctrination and the commodification of mind states.” Paul W. Morris, former managing editor of Tricycle: The Buddhist Review and an editor at the Utne award-winning website Killing the Buddha.
“Alan Clements’ one-man show is a hilarious and brilliant deconstruction of contemporary spiritual cows and geopolitical issues that illuminates the importance of understanding human consciousness as the most effective means of social, political and spiritual transformation.” Yoga Journal Review
