Charles the Clown
Lake Forest Park's Charles The Clown -- seen locally at Third Place, in area libraries, schools and parties, has a new, kid friendly Halloween video.

Halloween Puppet, can be found on his Youtube channel.

The clown, known for his funny programs and gentle approach to children’s entertainment, is a Children’s Medical Center regular.

The new video, produced with his wife, Linda Kirschner Kraus, a psychologist and early childhood specialist, is designed to help young children appreciate the silly side of Halloween.

“An upbeat clown video is particularly important this year,” Charles says, referring to all the publicity from scary clown sightings.

A key feature to Charles’ live performances is showing the audience how he becomes a clown. The transition is a comedy routine borrowed from his awarding winning A/M video. As he tries to get into the costume and apply his makeup, just about everything goes ‘wrong.’ 

The video was shot on the Charlie Chaplin Sound Stage, where Chaplin filmed most of his movies, and where Red Skelton taped his long running television series. A short version of the routine is found on another Charles The Clown video, Costume Fun.

The new Halloween video features Biscuit and Charles explaining costumes and the art of trick or treating. The highlight of the eight minute video has the camera follow the dog puppet on his Halloween rounds.

“I’m just a supporting player,” Charles admits. “Biscuit The Dog Puppet has more lines … and more fleas.”

Halloween Puppet  is aimed at children three and above.

A favorite at libraries, schools, festivals and parties, Charles recently returned from a four state, 30 city show tour.

“Needed to get back in time to carve the pumpkin,” he explained.
