The Bottom Line: Buddy is not your ordinary clown. Clowning is his career choice, it's not a hobby or part-time job. He trained and taught at clown and variety arts schools in the U.S.A. He has been performing full time since 1985. That is why he is so good at it, why most of his work is repeat or referral and why customer satisfaction is important to him. Shows are booked every day.
