[edit 2012: http://www.colorstheclownandco.com/ is up and running. I found out because after the comment below I thought I should check again. I hope Colors can come to your party, Haley!]
After we saw Mike the Mime perform we decided to go back through the Chelsea Summer fest toward the car. We discovered that we’d just missed the stage show of Colors the Clown, but I stopped her for a photo op and gave her my card. She didn’t have any of hers left, but she said that she was ‘in the book’. I told her that I wanted to get together and share clown info as I put together my business plan.
Here’s her pig. She’s got a traveling petting zoo.
Sadly, I had to google her because ‘in the book’ didn’t mean the Chelsea Yellow Pages. It meant the Ann Arbor Yellow Pages. She wasn’t quick enough to grab the domain colorstheclown.com that went to a clown in New Jersey. She got the rather wonky (but included with tuition at Washtenaw Community College) address of http://stu.wccnet.org/~dbraun/hw/index.html at least that’s what google shows as #1 hit.
However, if you swim upstream against those forward slashes you can find a “Donna Braun Final Project” that shows improvement in some areas, but the e-mail link is to email@example.com instead of firstname.lastname@example.org which the original had… and bounced back anyway!
Long story short: it seemed like she’d be the closest clown to visit, only 20 miles from Grumps’, but I never heard back from her. And she seemed like such a professional: 250 shows a year with 85% repeat business.
