The Clown In Times Volume Four


These four issues (13-16) of The Clown In Times were published in 1997-1998.  In response to a reader's survey, this volume placed greater emphasis on foreign clowns, female clowns, and classic routines.  This volume also started a series of articles on museums and other places of interest to clowns.  Issue fourteen was a tribute to Red Skelton and also included many articles related to the 127th Edition of the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus™.  This volume also included directions for a magic effect, and for making a napkin rose.  Issue fifteen and sixteen focused on two creative approaches to developing your own skits, switching and using a mind map.  Bound into issue sixteen is the full color U-W Clown Camp™ brochure with an identification key to the clowns depicted.  

This volume is available as a 120-page bound edition for $22.00  

Individual issues are available for $5 each.

Please add $5 postage and handling with each order.
