Clown 201 & 301: January 19th

by Rebecca 21. January 2016 06:52

We had 8 clowns arrive for the 201/301 class. To be respectful of the clowns who had already completed 201 or were trained in the field last year (like Ulises) – we did the 301 class first. It was amusing as Ulises (whom everyone was convinced was miserable as a clown during his first day) protested when I made him the “sad” clown in 2 different skits during the class. I love seeing how much he enjoys clowning.

The clowns Felix trained last year were there again (father and son). They told me that they built a larger version of a magic trick I had shown them last year and it’s been a huge hit with kids. They got into the “If I only had a green nose skit” a lot. They were a lot of fun to watch them improvise with the ideas.


Jorge was, as always, so engaging to watch. He pulled me aside at one point to show me a picture that he had of the clowns he trained. I was so glad to have brought several items that he was able to use for himself and his team.


We actually moved through the material incredibly fast. We not only completed all of the “301” in about 55 minutes but we were able to review/learn 201 for the older and newer clowns before doing a brief clown supply divvying up. As I opened up each bag and then opened up each space saver bag, the comment from the translators and Krishna who met me at the airport was, “No wonder customs pegged you to be interviewed.”

Why Clowns?

Whether it is in a hospital, memory care facility, at a charity event, or walking down the street, that moment when most individuals see a clown they smile, regardless of age or culture. Clowns almost universally help create smiles. There is something about the gift of a smile and laughter that helps improve our spirits, relieve tension, and can inspire us to hope.
