Wow! How our clown list grows! I thought this was our own section? Although there are so many great areas in this Magic Café, I find I can lose track of time! Smile

Bill Irwin is one of the great contemporary clowns. He does "The Lean" and a bunch of other Physical Comedy stuff that is amazing. You may have seen him on the Cosby show where he "walked" downward in a dressing trunk. He also does great Hat manipulations, etc. . .I've got a video of his that I'm auctioning off on Ebay. Email me if you are interested. . .Or just do a search, I guess. But, I love the idea of Clowns for Adults (Red Skelton, etc. . .) NOT just kids.

Hi All!
Please count me in here. I've been in magic for many years and am a first of May clown, I'm a member of IBM, SAM, COAI, and TCA (Texas Clown Assoc.). Picture will come soon. I do an act as a cowboy clown/magician and strolling magic as a cowboy character or an Auguste. Now that the Christmas shows are over, I'm mainly doing children's hospital shows and fundraisers for the local animal shelter along with some of my friends who are magicians, clowns, and pupeteers..

It's very nice to have found all y'all. (that's plural for y'all). And... uh... this is my first post. Thanks.

Hello All,
Jazzy the clown here. I am currently working in Okinawa Japan. I work days for the Air Force but nights and weekends Jazzy is alive. I have had the chance to work in many countries since I deploy all over and Jazzy is always requested by my commander. It allows my unit and I to show other countries some of the good that the military can do. It is great to be able to put smiles on the faces in so many languages.

Hi Whistle, Hocus & Jazzy,
I am happy to see our clown list growing! Now that we know we are here, can we share some of our funny magical experiences? I remember the time I set my strat o sphere cover down a little to hard and the ball fell early, yikes! I picked it up at the bottom and palmed the ball as I lifted and got away with it. I don't know why I set it down so hard, had never done that before in 10 years? I will never do it again LOL Smile

Hi!
I was a clown in college. They taught a 4 credit course and we performed all over NH.
My name was Serendipity (DIP for short).
I had Pippi Longstocking braids that stuck way up.
I just clowned recently at a neighborhood party, but nothing like my clown troupe.
Might get into it again someday!

Count me in! I'm Poof! The Magical Clown when performing at children's events. I do ventriloquism, comedy magic and balloons during the show.

I got started in clowning during my teenage years when I was helping a Ronald in Singapore. He was my mentor in clowning and magic for a while.

It's really great to know that there are so many clowns here.

Cheers,

"Poof! The Magical Clown"

hmmmm... in Australia the word Poof has a very different meaning.

I too have worn a red nose more times then I can poke a rubber chicken at.

At http://www.funnybones.com.au/clowns.htm
you can find a pic of me (as a clown) on top of Australia's HIGHEST mountain.

I think that most kid's magicians are plain clothes clowns at the end of the day.

I am new to clowning but I have seriously got the bug! My clown name is Lulu the Clown rather than Loopy Lu, but I like it anyway!

I have been a magician for a few years now, mainly doing stage and children's shows, all of which I enjoyed but I think it is time for a change. I have been practicing lots of clown skills and I am really looking forward to getting a unicycle!

As I said, I have been a magician for quite a while so I am going to involve that with my clowning. I also do fire eating, whilst I don't think that it is appropriate to mix that with clowning, I am finding that my clown skills are helping with it. I have started juggling my torches now! I also want to combine this with unicycling but all in good time!
Smile and the world smiles with you,

cry and you're on your own!

I took an eight-week clown course at my church in Florida at age 14. I haven't clowned in a while as I'm primarily a magician. On special occasions I dress up as "Tears" (hobo, tramp clown), the Clown. I do magic, and your basic balloon animal. I primarily work as a street performer and the times I do bring Tears out the kids seem to love him a lot. By the, way when I'm playing straight (no clown) I still do my balloon animals for those who request them, thanks.

Well, I guess I've joined the ranks too now. Just been to a fancy dress party dressed as a clown, entertained the kids with few tricks and whatnot. One of the parents has asked me to do their child's birthday party, paid gig too! Smile Smile Got my first birthday party on Friday, a friend who's turning six.

What's the deal with the white face and the auguste clowns? What's the difference apart from the makeup? I did the whole white face because I didn't know there was another way but I think I'll stick to it, just because it looked good.

There are different types of clowns.

Here is a pretty good reference on clown types.

Here is a link for History as well as a wealth of information on clowning. Welcome to our family.

Hey Rob

I'm a magical Clown from England. I'm a long term proud member of Clowns International.

I sometimes get the feeling that 'legit' magicians don't look too kindly at us lowly clowns but I've seen little evidence of that in this place.

The trouble with being a clown is that no one takes you seriously!!! Smile



Is it true cannibals won't eat clowns because they taste funny?

Seriously, I have nothing but respect for anyone who can pull off proper clowning! I've seen too many cases of people thinking; "I've got the make up, I've got the funny clothes, I'm a clown!" And they're not.

I had a restaurant job for a month or so before management decided a waitress (whom they were already paying) dressed as a clown would be fine. She wasn't. I actually suggested a book for her at the library but her attitude was; "I get paid the same minimum wage whether I just stand here, smile and hand out balloons or whether I actually make an effort to be good! Do the math!" She was actually a nice person... she just wasn't "clown" material! Smile

Hi,

I think you can count me as a clown. I haven't worn a clown costume for many many times, but I love to be a clown. Actually I'm a ventriloquist who uses magic, balloon twisting, origami, juggling and so on. Smile

We don't have a lot of "make up" clowns here, in Indonesia. Most of them use clown masks. But I use make up and I think I'm an Auguste. I try to learn clown make up from USA books. And I hope you can help me too.

My clown name is Bubu (boo-boo). But I realized, when I went to USA, that Bubu means hurt for USA kids. Should I change my clown name? What do you think?

Regards,

Budi Ha Ha a.k.a. Bubu

Welcome to our ring. Clown names are quite personal as are the stories behind them. A name like "boo-boo" can have multiple meanings, peek-a-boo-boo for instance.

Make-up schemes vary by region and also range from the quite simple to very elaborate. My links above should give you a pretty good reference points to start with.

Hello clowns,
The Circus Inferno Show from NYC performed at our Center for the Arts today. Preshow, my sons juggled, while I gave lessons. We set up a display table of juggling gear. We promoted our up coming Juggling Festival. We were then given very good seats and were told they were starting in the audience near us and sure enough my boys were covered with popcorn. The show is very good a LOT of slap stick I'll bet they are sore after the show! The show is all physical comedy and pyro timed very well with sound effects and music.

Giday to you all. Please count me in.

Troppo Bob comes in 2 styles.

Most of the time he is performing at venues where the primary audience is children and on most occassions is booked as Troppo Bob the magical Clown with painted face and colorfull overalls and baseball cap with propellor on top. This Troppo Bob is into entertaining with juggling, ventriloquism, clown oriented magical routines, performing animals and ballon sculptures.

At other times he presents in black clothing with a sports jacket and is introduced as Troppo Bob the Magician. This bloke looks more serious but that clown is still eager to make a contribution.

I will come back to this paddock and check out the other topics.

Troppo Bob
