Quote of the Day
Clowning is a trick to get love close. I can hug 99 percent of people in the first second of contact if I'm in my clown character. The clown assumes your humanity. It assumes that, whatever trauma you've had, you can still love yourself.
I am always joking and always clowning, giving and helping.
I was a class clown. At 12, I was definitely clowning. I was making all the jokes. But I was smart, so the teachers didn't know what to do with me.

I took a couple of classes in clowning, but that was more like Lucille Ball kind of slapstick, not Ringling Brothers.

June Diane Raphael
