Hospital Clowning: April Fools

Monday, April 1st 2019

For April Fools this year we got ALL CLOWNS ON DECK.


Instead of the usual two clowns on rounds, we had twelve.

How many clowns does it take to make a phone call?



Or to ride an elevator?

Here are some shots from our Big Clown Comedy Show:


As for my part in the show, long story short we ended up producing a professional music video of a patient-friend performing the World Debut of her original song, City of the Unicorn.  I got to introduce it and share this example of how our spirits are lifted by those whose spirits it is supposed to be our job to lift.  To that point:

Joy and Jay also performed an expertly executed clown battle over a chair:


Which Dr. Mal Adjusted won in the end:

It’s like watching a real life cartoon.

Such a privilege to share this wonderful time with our hospital family and superstar patients!
