best clown school - 2003
NEW YORK GOOFS
At the NEW YORK GOOFS' intensive clown school, clowning isn't about bright-colored makeup but rather about expressing your inner clown character. For those training in "the circus arts," the goofs provide a supportive workshop environment manned by jovial bearded instructors who can balance sousaphones on their chins. Dick Monday, founder of the goofs in 1998, explains that their philosophy is that clowns aren't just funny, but moving as well. "You're a magical character to children and you can't disappoint them."
