KEITH CRARY: Great Circus Parade 2009

Mr. Crary, an award-winning Hollywood makeup artist, does Ernest Borgnine's Bobby Kay-designed makeup before each parade.



I don't think Keith performs much anymore but I wish that some show would hire his services for promotional work. He's probably America's greatest living picture clown and his extravagant clown wardrobe and meticulous makeup would add an immeasurable amount of genuine razzle-dazzle and lend the air of classic, old fashioned professional showmanship that is sorely lacking in most contemporary American circus promotion.

I've seen so many stellar pictures of Crary. Great looking clown.

Keith is absolutely magnificent in real life as well. I currently work with him and he is a bright light in this world, one I will always cherish for his warmth and compassion. I am a far better person for knowing him.

I've known Keith for many years, and he is one of most caring and loving individuals that has crossed my path. He has been a family friend of ours and we treasure his friendship
