Clowns On Tour - Next Stop D.C.

GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan -- The annual Clowns of America International convention was held here this week. It started on Tuesday and closes on Sunday. More than 300 people showed up from places as far away as Okinowa (Japan). Representatives from Canada, Mexico and Brazil were also on hand. There was a particularly interesting contingent from Florida, which included such clowns as Michael Schiavo, George Felos and Judge George W. Greer.


The group heads next to Washington, D.C. where they will put on a show that will attempt to rival the slapstick antics of the U.S. Congress. "I know it's a tough act to follow", said one clown who wished to remain anonymous, "but I think we have better make-up and outfits."

Are the clowns from Florida among those in the picture? Or were they too gross to post.

kajun,
I think they're the ones in back... I don't know who the guy with the green eyes in the front row is.

The clowns in Washington have a lot more experience than any other group of clowns plus they have stand-up comedians with straight men to provide the stupid answer to the trick question which then leads to the punch line. Question:"Who's at the U.N." Straight man: "Idunnoknow", Punchline: "No, no, no, he's on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee" along with Whazzzup, and Dumkopf.
They are all highly trained professionals accustomed to competition for the best performance of the day. All the comedy magazines and newspapers hang on their every word. You can't beat that kind of publicity.
