I have been told that you both do some clowning with your magic, and I was looking for some good resources on the subject. I was wondering if either of you (or anyone who might look at this post) could offer me any suggestions. I am not professional, and I do not do "shows", i do only charity work at childrens homes, orphanages, and schools in the formor soviet union and kazakhstan.

Mostly, I am looking for some new ideas for my routine, which includes color changing scarves, TT tricks, and roxie the racoon bits, but I am running short on ideas and would like to freshen up my routine with some new bits (either magically or "clownwise")

Thanks in advance for any help you might give.....

This would be more appropriate as a PM, since it's addressed to only 2 people.

Yes, but the answer could help many.

I suppose I should have chosen a better name for the post, i only wanted to call attention to these two members in particular, but as I wrote in the post, I would love to hear from anyone who has suggestions, resources, or other input that could be valuable.

I will try to select better titles in the future!

I thought, at first glance, that this was some kind of poll.

:wink:

"Seriously Silly" by David Kaye comes to mind right away. You can check it out right here: http://www.penguinmagic.com/specialorderproduct.php?ID=6996

Well... except for the fact that Seriously Silly doesn't really say anything about "clowning" per se.

It's a great resource for learning about performing magic for children; it's a terrible resource for learning how to clown.

I think David Ginn (also a genius) has a book on clown magic.

This is a fantastic book. It has all and more what you are looking for. There's another book 'creative clowning' that is even better.
I also thought this was a poll, I was voting for that Sluggo guy!
Actually Paddy and I know one another. We are both from the same area and have met a few times.
The first time I met him was at an outdoor event. He was doing Clown work and they wanted a Fire truck there for the kids to look at. I was working that day so we took it up and Paddy and I begin to talk and got to know one another that way.
I went down to one of the restaurants that he works at I.E. balloons/face painting and talked awhile with him.
I actually attended a 'Clown' school in Minnesota at the Mooseburger Clown camp for a week. There's two very good schools for that..Mooseburger and Clown Camp in Lacross Wisconsin.
I've been to a number of Conventions since and I pick something up every time.
The best Family entertainment conference I've attending is the kidabra convention. I give it five stars.

Thanks for the great tips. I have gone ahead and purchased creative clowning. I would be interested also if there are any other resources that you guys use, either on the internet or other books, to help generate routine ideas.

Thanks again for the help, and sorry for the confusion in the title!!
