Possibly best known in pop-culture for playing the titular role in the 1985 film Jewel of the Nile (co-starring Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner), as well as a guest appearance in the 1986 hit television series Webster. However, before all that, in 1984 Mr. Eisenberg became the first solo performer to take over New Yorks theater district with a hit Broadway clown show called Avner the Eccentric.

I remember standing backstage at opening night on Broadwayand there were lots of movie stars and all the New York press and starting to talk myself into getting worried and then goingwait a minutemy character has to be naïve. And I just let go of all that, went out and did the show and got good reviews and ran for almost a year! Avner Eisenberg

Currently, he travels the world with his incredible one-man show Exceptions to Gravity while teaching the ancient & powerful art of eccentric performing.

Ive discovered a lot of very interestingsort oftheyre not anomalies obviously, but they look like anomalies of balance. Balancing things in surprising ways, says Mr. Eisenberg; continuing with, I think the basic idea is a kind of reverse engineering, of finding a trick that I could do and then sayingokay, thats the solutionwhat was the problem?

His unique scientific approach to stagecraft, comedy and teaching has led to incredible breakthroughs with professional performing artists from all around the world.

Most of my creativity is going into teaching others, and also to doing directing and coaching. And I have a series of principles, eccentric performing principles, that are a pretty good guide for creating and maintaining rapport with the audience and with ones partners, and then looking for the comedy in terms of problem solving. Avner Eisenberg

Using the skills he has learned as a professional hypnotherapist, as well as being an expert practitioner of NLP, Mr. Eisenberg teaches his students how to understand what is going on inside the human brain, so they may be able to create stronger, more authentic connections when performing for an audience.

Its not about costumes, makeup, funny faces, funny voicesits the attitude you have to solving the problems that you find along the way to doing your job. Avner Eisenberg
