Karen Bell blends her love of children and laughter to delight kids of all ages. It is her life's work. How did Karen discover her true calling? On a whim, she attended circus and clowning class offered by the Pickle Family Circus. She was hooked. Later, when the "Greatest Show on Earth" came to town, Karen auditioned-and was accepted-at the world famous Ringling Brothers Clown College. Here, as a clown-in-training, Karen set out to learn her chosen trade-making others laugh!
During her eight years clowning around the globe with the Ringling Brother's Circus, Karen brought laughter into the lives of millions. She has appeared on the CBS Circus Specials, starring Michelle Lee and Barbara Mandrel, Disney’s “Let’s Go to the Circus!” Sing-a-Long video, Today Show, Good Morning America and Entertainment Tonight. A mask of Karen’s Clown Face is on tour in the museum exhibit ‘Circus Magicus’. When Karen decided to leave behind the vagabond life of a circus clown, she returned to her hometown, Denver, to launch Clowning by Karen. The ‘sawdust has never left her shoes’, however so a couple tours overseas were booked. After 10 years of performing for kids of all ages Karen has returned to her roots and joined up with Circus Sarasota, www.CircusSarasota.org. She now works with the Laughter Unlimited outreach program using Humor Therapy to brighten the day of Senior Citizens and Hospialized Individuals. Karen also has developed an education program using the Educational State Standards of Florida for Circus Sarasota.
From silly to educational, from whimsical to historical, Karen can do it all. She has created several one-woman stage shows, teaches children's clowning workshops, and performs at parties. Karen is also available as roaming entertainment at fairs and festivals or for face painting and balloon animals.
