Professional clowning: Not just fun and games

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Being a professional clown may seem like fun and games, but it takes more than a few tricks to put on a show.

News 12 headed to Queens to learn about the props and costumes that make the act from a clown.

“The idea is to capture and enjoy the moment. Since technology has advanced, it has separated our society,” Lucho Salazar says.

He has been a professional clown for over 10 years and has traveled around the world.

Despite a slow couple of months, he says he’s invested too much to give up.

“I work like everybody else, sometimes more than some people. To reduce my rent, I have to clean the building as a super…super clown,” Salazar says.

His goal is to continue to grow his business and for a couple of hours distract people from the cyber world with a laugh.
