Judkins has performed all over the state of Maine, New England, and in over 25 U.S. states, Canada and Europe. He has appeared in a handful of television commercials and independent films throughout the years. Randy has also instructed at the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey’s Clown College in Florida, and has served as a character consultant for Tri-Star Pictures and a Circus of the Stars trainer in Hollywood. The Juilliard School of Drama in New York City hired Randy to teach a series of master classes in character and physical comedy.
In 2010 he held a visiting artist position at Stephens College in Missouri teaching circus arts, mime and comedy for 7 weeks to dance and theater majors. Randy served as Master of Ceremonies twice for the Patrick Dempsey Challenge Banquet for Hope and Healing, and cycled the 100-mile course the next day. He ran the Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race while juggling three balls the entire 6.2 miles.
He finished the race in under an hour and he did not drop a ball.
In 2002, he founded the comedy trio, the Maine Hysterical Society. They have been called ‘The best variety comedy act in New England’. Their Downeast characters perform comical songs and sketches about Maine. In July of 2008, he performed with Lucie Arnaz at “Birdland”, the legendary Jazz Club in NYC.
Judkins unique blend of Maine Humor, juggling, mime and character work will tickle the funny-bone of everyone in the family. It’s a wicked good way to spend an evening away from the tellie-vision screen, and get out to enjoy some good ol’ fashion original home grown humor. Also, don’t forget, Randy’s workshop, it’s not just for performers! If you have ever, or will ever give a class, speech, or other presentation in front of humans, cats or other beasts you won’t want to miss this thoroughly entertaining lecture on performance tips.
