Additional Book Details

Revised Full Color 4th Edition

It's an excellent book for both beginner and advanced clowns.

"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."
--Booklist, American Library Association

"Included are chapters on how to be a birthday party clown, ideas for jobs, and a list of clown publications and organizations. The strengths of the book lie in the detailed, comprehensive coverage of the topic, the inclusion of many ideas and examples, and the emphasis on in-depth understanding of the process involved in creation of character and comic routine."
--School Library Journal

"As the current president of the World Clown Association and director of a large clown training program, I see this book as a major stepping stone in our quest for improving the field of clowning."
--Richard Snowberg, Ph.D.

"Creative Clowning is without a doubt the most concise, idea filled book I have ever read on the art of clowning! Every topic is covered and the photographs are great. It is a truly delightful book and I heartily recommend it to anyone interested in the world of clowning!"
--Diana Enright, Placitas, NM

"What a great book it is! Any clown (or anyone who wants to be a clown) should have this book. It could be called The Bible of Clowning. It is not only a 'textbook' of clowning, but a fun, amusing, thoroughly enjoyable book to read!"
--Ed Harris, Minneapolis, MN

"I would recommend the 223 page book to any clown, beginner or professional. It is the most complete book on clowning to is factual, informative and will become the reference book on clowning for the foreseeable future...the best on the market."
--Jim Russell, Clowning Around

"It's an excellent book, for both beginner and advanced clowns. I have recommended it to my local clown groups and my beginning class at Purdue."
Janet Tucker, Hammond, IN

"An excellent study guide... Detailed and rich in ideas and illustrations, this book includes hundreds of things you can do to entertain an audience."
--Juggler's World Magazine

"An excellent book... If you're not funnier after reading this book, you're hopeless."
