Bozo The Clown – Thanks for the Laughs

Bozo the Clown

Bozo the Clown

The man who fully marketed the character of Bozo the Clown died today at age 83.  Here is the full story from CNN.  I got to see a number of shows produced live at WGN-TV, and that character in the hands of talented performers really got the kids going.  It was a beautiful thing.  Thanks Larry Harmon.

Here’s a video of Willard Scott from the Today Show talking about his Bozo performance days.

One response to “Bozo The Clown – Thanks for the Laughs

  1. Great post! A book by Larry “Bozo” Harmon just released today actually… “The Man Behind the Nose: Assassins, Astronauts, Cannibals, and Other Stupendous Tales”. Anyone in the Los Angeles area should come celebrate the 50th anniversary of Bozo the Clown at the book signing this weekend! http://lcoonline.wordpress.com/2010/08/17/come-celebrate-the-50th-anniversary-of-bozo-the-clown/
