The Famous Flower Clown
Flower Entertainment grew out of Flower Clown.
Just the facts ma’am….. Flower Clown started way back in 1985 when Mom picked up a unicycle from the Middlefield Auction. Auctions were a big part of my childhood. Mom bought a pile of stuff and in that pile was a unicycle. Growing up in Leroy where the roads were an asphalt / gravel mix skateboarding was not an option but, the unicycle worked. I taught my self how to ride using crutches and I still carry a unicycle with me in my van till this day. A few years passed and in 1988 I got a job working at PowerPlay in the Power House in the Flats of Cleveland. There was a Mime there making balloons. There was young children in my family so I thought making balloon animals would be great to learn and I grew up on Legos so I was always tinkering and building things. The Mime was not a nice guy so I went to John’s Fun House and bought a bag of 260 balloons from Jeff Reid. Put the balloon to my mouth and it ended there. Never knew how hard the twisting balloons were to blow up. Well I stick with it and after a few weeks I got air in the balloons. I taught myself to make dogs, flowers and swords and for the next 9 years I made these 3 balloons from time to time for the family. Then in 1997 after spending a year traveling Asia I got home and got my old job back. This time there was a clown there on the weekends making balloon animals so I showed him what I knew. He show me they made balloons pumps! After that there was no stopping me. 3 years later I quite my electronic engineering job and have been a full time close sense July of 2000. Flower Entertainment grew out of Flower Clown having too many parties on the weekend that he/I could handel. Now my wife Stacy runs the Business side leaving me time to clown.
That is it in a nut shell or am I just a nut?
