BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT... EVER!!!

Shane came home from school today to find a box from Elmo Gibb waiting on the dining room table. In it, a custom made "Cashin Comedy Co." slapstick! We spent the afternoon whacking each other (and fighting the urge to give Jamie a swat on his diaper-protected rump).

It's the perfect Christmas gift, a blow-off to the Elastic Gag!

Thank you, Elmo! Merry Christmas!

Any kid who reads 100 books during summer break deserves a slapstick!

You'll slap your eyes out, kid!

Elmo,

Put one on reserve for me!
Email price, shipping cost, et cetera.
Great idea.

Where can I get one?!

Pat,

If you don't mind a little commercial for Elmo.

ElmoGibb@yahoo.com

He is a first-class prop builder of clown and magic items.

Folks, get your orders in early because he is a very busy builder.

I met Elmo at the Rochester, NY Shrine date in 1980. There were 8 clowns in the alley on the M&M Circus International produced date. Until the Showfolks Circus a few weeks ago, I haven't seen that many professional clowns on an independently produced circus date.

History is starting to repeat itself!

I met Elmo Gibb in 1998 at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. I was rehearsing a show on a stage adjacent to Elmo's site on which he was building a restaurant. Mostly by himself. A restaurant. By himself.

One day, after rehearsal, he came over, said hi, told me he thought I was doing some funny things and suggested some ways I could add more comedy and make some bits even funnier.

I thought, "Who the hell is this contractor giving me comedy advice?"

A few weeks later, I realized exactly who he was. A clown I had seen doing advance work in the Trumbull CT Mall, that I had tremendous respect for and I was fortunate enough to develop a nice friendship with hi over the next few years.

Yay Elmo Gibb!
