Clown Quotes Booklet

I’m not sure where I got this little booklet of quotes.  It may have been a handout from Clown Camp 2009, leftover from a previous year.  Or was it from the Clown Forum prop swap?  I can’t remember.  No matter, it’s a little gem either way.  A compilation of quotes regarding clowning, it was put […]
