We've noticed the so-called "man in white dress" popping up in lower Manhattan more and more the past few months, particular near The Cube at Astor Place. And it turns out that he is none other than performance artist Matthew Silver, who you may recall from the great Earwax-clown war of 2008. In the video below, watch as Silver amuses some passersby with one of his shows, which includes a song about "how it's OK to be gay."

Silver, who is also a filmmaker and standup comedian, explains on his website that he is "on a spiritual journey to make the entire world LAUGH at NOTHING." Below, check out more videos of him performing in various white dresses, as well as him, um, doing his thing on the subway recently.
