In 1972 Silly Willy, a long term resident of Carroll County, Maryland, began his career. A student of theology, he was introduced to the Christian Clown Ministry, where he realized that clowning was his true calling. With a little balloon training from Bozo the Clown, Willy honed his balloons skills within a month. It took him even less time to establish the magic that he learned from retired Ringling Brothers' clowns. Face painting and puppetry were natural skills for Willy. 30 years later, Willy is still sharing his wonderful ability to bring joy and smiles to everyone he meets.
