Anyone wanting to learn more about clowns and clowning are welcome to visit I especially enjoyed attending former Ringling clown college dean Dick Monday and Tiffany Riley's 2 week workshop in NY and Tricia's clown arts camp in Minnesota. There's always gonna be the good, the bad and the ugly in any professional. Many jack of all trades, very few specialists. Only the strong survive (or live). You can't please everyone, especially someone who is either ignorant to a subject or someone who just doesn't know any better.

No funtobeakid, clowns do NOT make a difference along with teachers, bakers and lawyers. I think that white facepaint must be getting you high if you believe that nonsense.

Well, it goes to show that Pat knows nothing about clowning at all. It shows how some people talk without knowing what they are talking about. And for your little response non of our children how nightmares. I would love to see Pat do some clowning at a large event just to see what people would say about Pat. I think that would be funny but hurtful to the clown community because there are people out there like Pat who think things are easy. We do this job and put many hours into it because we love it. Just like a teacher, baker, lawyer we make a differnce. Now, I know Pat will come back with something so now come on and give us a laugh.......

Clown, Ever think of doing a ministry that doesn't involve dressing up as a stupid demonic clown??? It will save you money and help stop children from having nightmares.

I am so sorry that some people feel it's so easy being a clown. My husband and I are ministry clowns. We constantly attend conferences, classes, traveling to learn more and more. We sign for the deaf and work with special needs children as well. The money that is spent learning, make-up, clothing, shoes, wigs, lashes, magic tricks, ballon cost, face-painting, games, etc. is so expensive to keep up. You don't get into this just to be a silly clown. You have to have some personality inside to entertain not only children but the family as well. We write our own routines, put together, write our own songs, travel all over the united states and no matter how long we are clowning that day we have to always be happy and excited, which is easy for us because we love what we do. We work in pairs and never touch a child. They come to us and hug us and we do hug back but never go and put our hands on children because we want to always keep our good rep in tact. Now, what this other clown did was very wrong and she knew better. I know this clown and it is sad because she is one of the best clowns I have ever met next to Ro-d-Yo. The world has lost a funny lady. I was shocked when I heard this and feel sorry for all the kids out there that knew her and have heard about this. The kids are first always and everything we do reflects not only on us but everyone that knows us and what we do. I plan on a life time of giving laughter and fun and I ask God everyday to help me to think first before I act to always be able to keep a good rep. for my own children to see the example we live. Have a great day.

Dina, Get serious. Being a clown is not hard work. And if she can't get new work, she should get a job at McDonalds. Flipping burgers is just like juggling, but with meat and spatulas.

I think you are the most retarded reporter by far... you to stoop low to say clowns don't do anything but put on makeup and wear hideous outfits... that should offend ANY clown... I am not a clown but I have witness how it can be tough... As it is as any other profession, it is work. No one will hire a clown that just stands there would they? She is a HARD worker.. Granted she had made a poor judgement does NOT in any way make her a monster.
