Clown meetup sought near San Francisco

A professionally trained clown is looking to get together with some colleagues near San Francisco

If this isn't an opportunity, I don't know what is.

A professionally trained clown--he studied at the Ecole Philippe Gaulier in Paris!!!--has moved to Pacifica, Calif., a small town near San Francisco, and is looking to start a regular gathering of fellow clowns.

"In order to keep practicing and performing, I'd like to meet up (and) show what I have learned, and share our experiences," the clown, who does not give his name, wrote on Meetup.com. "My proposal is to lead some days workshop and see where this takes us to. What is most necessary is playfulness (and being) willing to have fun. It is not necessary be a professional, only good spirit is basic."

As a former clown school student--seriously--I have to admit I'm intrigued. Not least because I am surrounded by clowns, real and metaphorical, in my daily social and professional life. I guess the question is, who's going to bring the red noses?
