Summary, etc.:
The Fourth Edition has full-color photos and drawings throughout. Known as the “Bible of Clowning” by professional clowns, this fun-filled book goes beyond merely explaining how to perform the physical skills, it teaches the reader how to use these skills creatively to become funny and entertaining. Drawing from the combined experience and talents of eight professional entertainers and respected authors, this book provides step-by-step instructions on everything from juggling to makeup, and being funny, to setting up and operating a home-based entertainment business. Includes information on comedy magic, stiltwalking and unicycling, balloon sculpting, funny juggling, fun with puppets, silly music, balancing buffoonery, mine and physical comedy, makeup and wardrobe, developing a lovable character, controlling an audience, creative use of props, how to create funny routines and gags, how to be a good comedian, and how to make a successful living as a children's entertainer.
Subject: Clowning.
