Be A Clown!Book - 1989
Written by the towering Turk Pipkin, a 6' 7" professional clown, BE A CLOWN! The Complete Guide To Instant Clowning provides the know-how, techniques, encouragement--and official red plastic nose--needed to put kids of all ages in the center ring. This lively, humorous handbook covers all aspects of clownmanship, including makeup, funny faces, costume (how to make big clown shoes at home), and props like the Bouncing Hankie. Fully illustrated throughout, it reveals step-by-step the secrets of Slapstick, Timing & Takes, and Juggling. Develop your own oddball walk, swallow chair legs--you'll always have a stunt up your sleeve. 72,000 copies in print.
