Clowns today are laughter artists whose tools range from cream pie to poetic delirium. But many also lead a double life of care and tenderness.
In I Clown for Youhoo! we meet Doc Willikers, Dr Fifi, Onri Ireland and many other loving and crazy clowns who bring laughter to children immobilized in their hospital beds, elderly persons awaiting death, refugees from whom war has taken everything and juvenile delinquents.
With and without their red nose, they tell us about their work and life. They bring us into a world where lightness, darkness, laughter, and tears are often intertwined and where life, courage and hope overcome all.
