    Well hi everyone...I'm a kid from a small town who has decided to pursue clowning as a career, but that leads to some issues...It feels like no one really supports my dream, no one really gets how important it is to me! Even my best friend seems to skip over the subject a lot... I'm supposed to debut at my school's homecoming this Saturday, and I'm so nervous! Just...just came here to rant and gather up my courage, I guess

    Remember, as a clown, it's ok to fail. In fact, failure is celebrated. Just be genuine.

    I am sure that once they see you at the homecoming, they will take more notice of you and your career goals. Most kids don't know what they want to do as a career or pick some generic item like fireman or astronaut... Mine was definitely, astronaut.

    I wish I was still a kid and could pick a summer camp or other program that offers clowning and circus skills.

    Find others in your area with similar interests. See if there is a juggling club, magician ring, or clown alley. Join a community theatre program.

    Just got back from homecoming and it went GREAT! I found out what worked (talking through a whistle I carried) and everyone seemed to really enjoy it! I guess "Reggie the Clown" has officially been born!

    Yeah! congratulations. You are a huge step further than many others! Just keep finding places to put yourself out there and learn from every encounter. Do your research and work on your sense of humor. You can become funnier it takes practice. This forum is a great place to start but so is social media. Just search for the funny in life and you will find your funny bone. Just don't sit around on your isshium cause that "is not the key um" to being funny. You gotta get out there. Go get em tiger.

    I once read that clowning is not a hobby,or job it is a vocation. I now believe that is true and we who take clowning the way should be ( brining laughs and smiles to our audience) who are called to do it. I also are becoming more aware how much I affect other people when I am clowning.
