Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Avner the Eccentric (stage name of Avner Eisenberg, born August 26, 1948) is an American vaudeville performer, clown, mime, juggler, and sleight of hand magician. He played the title role (the Holy Man known as the "Jewel") in the 1985 film The Jewel of the Nile. John Simon described him in 1984 as "A clown for the thinking man and the most exacting child." Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Avner went to four different universities with a variety of tentative majors; he ultimately received a theater degree from the University of Washington in 1971. He then studied mime in Paris under Jacques Lecoq, interrupting those studies to spend some time as a puppeteer. Returning to the U.S., he taught at Carlo Clementi's Dell'Arte School of Physical Comedy in California.
