Clowning Around

Sir Toony Juggling

Sir Toony loves to clown around with children of all ages. Sir Toony is a professional clown who comes to events dressed as a clown from head to toe. He has been in several area parades with his friends from Just Clowning Around of Northern Virginia (JCA) and the Kapitol Klowns, been invited to area picnics, and clowned at charity events in Northern Virginia and Washington, DC. When Sir Toony attends a special event, he can often be found entertaining people with his juggling or some of his pocket tricks. One of his favorite props is his Chocolate Colored Brown Es. Unfortunately for Sir Toony, most people prefer real brownies.

Sir Toony has other skills and can also be found face painting or making balloon animals.
