He was later seduced by the theatre but was run out of theatre school for the heinous crime of making gratuitous jokes about the Stanislavsky method. He became a clown, which, as it turned out, was not such a bad idea. At the Kazan Festival of Independent Theatre his show, "One, Two, Three" unexpectedly took the prize for "Best Clown Duet". From 1991-1996 he was a member of the clown troupe Mimigranti. In 1991 Mr. Sladkevitch participated in the Golden Clown festival in Moscow and as co-creator and actor in the show "Comedy with Murder" was awarded the Grand Prize. He has worked as a clown in "Circus on the Water" in France and has earned his bread in Germany by making people laugh.
