We are living in a challenging time and the joy shared by clowns is in need more than ever --- as long as you're not scary!
I'm going to be blunt. A lot of the clowning educators are stuck in another era. They continue to produce what the public views as "scary clowns," and by doing so, they are holding back the art form from evolving with the times. As someone who is dedicated to keeping the art of clowning alive and thriving, I do things in ways that are anything but traditional.
Whether you're new to clowning or have been doing it for years, I have a special formula to my craft that makes me stand out and I want to share it with you!

I was fortunate enough to take a clowning workshop with Billy and I was floored by how professional and knowledgeable he was. It's hard to NOT watch Billy. He is truly a blazing bright star that anyone would have trouble appreciating. He is charming, enthusiastic, and hilarious. He manages to be all those things while being a consummate professional. I can't recommend him enough.
Working with Billy was a dream. He is intensely focused on his craft and an excellent clown partner who makes sure that whoever he is working with shines as bright as he does.
Billy is a creative force, and that's putting it mildly. He is the kind of branding specialist that will uncover what is not working and replace it with winning strategies that will change the client's game. His professional expertise has made him a go-to contact all across the entertainment and design industries. Plus, he's just a ridiculous amount of fun to work with and a genuinely kind, thoughtful human being.
