Hi there,

I'm new to the idea of being a clown, and I wandered if some of you would be willing to share some background information as to what is the art of clowning and what resources there are for teaching you your routines?

I'm not completely oblivious to clowns, as my great grandparents used to run the hippodrome circus in great yarmouth around fifty yers ago. If anybody has a link to that circus, please get in touch also as I will be greatly interested to hear from you!

Many thanks

If you need to learn clown makeup techniques, "Strutter's Complete Guide To Clown Makeup" by Jim Roberts is an excellent book.

Go here http://www.avnertheeccentric.com/
click on links-click on Clown Principles
Pretty much sums it up.
Also the gag you use very much depends on the performance situation.
