    The Clown in you is a great read for all clowns at all levels of experience Weather you are just learning how to discover your clown or you are a working professional such as myself You can learn a lot about clown theory from this book I m a professional circus clown currently on tour with Ringling bros and Barnum Bailey circus I always want to be the best clown I can be I believe with my whole heart that as a clown you never stop learning Reading this book has given me of an understand of why I do some of the things I do when I am clowning It s also giving me some very helpful ideas to help me stay true to my character.When you are working the ring with twelve other clowns It s very important you know your character and how to stand out I hope this review was helpful and every clown that buys this book learns as much as I did while reading it I also hope to see material put out from this very talented clown and author.

    The Clown in You is a very useful book for the serious student of clowning professionals included as well as for beginners It is, as the subtitle promises, contemporary clowning, aka the personal clown or the clown from the heart There is very little on clown gags, no formulas for creating material It really is about using your own innate joy, silliness and, yes, stupidity, to forge a clown character unique to you As the old saying goes no, I don t know who said it first , clowns characters aren t created, they are uncovered.see my whole review at

    I have just finished this book and will re read it Very usefull discussion on the why do it As a working professional I often question myself on my motivation for this as a career choice Unfortunately there are teachers holding courses shrouded in mystery leaving the student dazed and confused and I think this manual acts as a very usefull coaching aid and a reminder that everyone has to struggle to master their art.As the author states there are no instant cures without hard work but the journey will be easier with positive encouragement.
