all about straws

Straws the Clown has been clowning since 1988. He has received top awards from International clown associations as well as  State and Local clown associations. Just to mention a couple, First Place Make-up and Wardrobe competition from Clowns of America International and 6 time First-place state balloon-twisting champion from Texas Clown Association.

When Straws first started clowning his mother (Smiley the Clown, click here to view) taught him the basics. He then went on to attend clown school at  Houston based Cheerful Clown Alley Clown School and then received special one-on-one training from a professional clown tutor.  He then started attending clown conventions and seminars and  honed his talents with acting classes at University of Houston.

Straws has reached one of his goals. While attending the clown conventions, Straws really wanted to be at the same point of professionalism as the lecturers were. To be able to make other clowns laugh and to teach the finer  arts of clowning was his goal. He is now a sought after lecturer and teacher of clowns and has served at International, State, and Local levels teaching other clowns how to be better clowns.

Straws is living his dream, he has entertained at thousands of birthday parties, churches, daycares, public schools, company picnics and has even had  the honor of entertaining children not only in the U.S.A. but also in China and France.
