It's true, just a plain fact of life: some kids find clowns extremely alarming. But when Toot-A-Loo arrives at the door, her sensitivity, minimal make-up, and immediate likability usually dispel any fears. Toot-A-Loo (aka Marilyn Galfin) has over 20 years of experience and is a senior member The Big Apple Circus Clown Care. She has comedy bits suitable for little kids as well as grown-ups. Kids can can sing silly songs with Squeaky the Puppet, smell the magic "Halitosis Smellarosis" flower, watch a grown-up doing the Boom Shahkalaka rain dance. The riotous family comedy/variety show also includes magic, movement, and mime. Toot-a-loo's dog- or cat-themed birthday party show is also an option. Balloon animals are the icing on the birthday cake at the end of each show. Clown Around Town's clients include Mick Jagger and Puff Daddy. Marilyn also has a wide variety of associate performers, including mimes, circus entertainers (stilt walkers and jugglers), caricaturists, puppeteers, balloon artists, and face painters.
