A Wonderful Short Documentary About The Art Of Clowning

Clowning is a comedic artform that dates back centuries, and although clowning has become less circus and more cirque over the years clowns are still doing classic bits and carrying on an ancient tradition.

Those who embrace the role of the clown have many skills to master, such as makeup, slapstick and miming, but most importantly they must develop a character the audience connects with and make 'em laugh.

This wonderful episode of the American Theatre Wing series Working In The Theatre focuses on the art of clowning and reveals the true power of the clown- universal appeal.

Clowns? Not on your life! Keep them far away from me. Never liked them, never found them remotely funny and I find them to be creepy, scary and I will beat them with a baseball bat if they come into my personal space or home. *This also can be applied to mimes.
