Zippedy the Clown is the alter ego of artist/educator Robert Gluckson, M.A. Zippedy appears at parties, events, and parades, where he does walkabouts, creates balloon sculptures, and leads group games, sing-alongs, and knock-knock joke contests. Party-goers can don a costume, get their faces painted, and join the parade! He and his clown partner, Doo-dah, write, produce, and perform clown plays.
