Clown School

Clown School

“Being a clown is the best decision I ever made. I get to spend time serving children and the community and get paid to do it.” – Hanna Banana

People come to clown school for many reasons. Some people want a part-time job working with kids, some come because they think it is fun, some come because they just love working with children. Whatever the reason, our clown
school changes lives. Our clown school is not a circus school but more like a clown college.

Next School for a clown career held at Circus Circus in Reno, NV
