"More than balloon tying and makeup tips, this
tutorial teaches the practical and business aspects of the clowning
profession. A history of clowning includes notes on famous entertainers
and advice on developing a unique character. The eight authors, all
experts in the field, explain the how-to's of juggling, puppetry,
slapstick, magic, joke telling, and stilt walking. Even for those not
aspiring to clown stardom or planning to set up their own entertainment
business, this volume can be useful as a source for planning a party or
special school event. Addresses for publications, organizations, and
suppliers are appended."

understanding of the process involved in creation of character and comic

enjoyable book to read!"
--Ed Harris, Minneapolis, MN
