The first week in August is always National Clown Week, first inaugurated crazily enough by President Richard Nixon in 1971. Be that as it may, I’ll be honoring the day tomorrow with a special Zoom talk on vaudeville clowns and slapstick screen comedians. As always it will be free to my Patreon supporters and $5 per to the general public via paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org). Log-in info will be sent once you’ve enrolled.
August 1, 2pm (EST): The Clowns of Vaudeville
