[ARCHIVED] Legislator Kopel Honors Lev Leytzan Clowning Program

Medical Clowning Program

Legislator Howard Kopel held a Point of Personal Privilege at a recent Legislature Meeting to present Legislative Citations to members of the Lev Leytzan Medical Clowning program.
Serious Clowning: A Story Behind Every Smile" is the Lev Leytzan slogan, and it captures the two most important elements in every compassionate clowning experience: the discipline and dedication of our clowns, and the fragile humanity of the children and adults they interact with.
We believe that clowning is a "serious business" because of the rigorous training our compassionate clowns must undergo, and the commitment they must be willing to make on an intellectual, emotional, and physical level. Lev Leytzan clowns know that nothing less than their very best will do, because the goal is not just to entertain, but to alleviate pain, loneliness, and suffering wherever they go and lift fragile spirits and heal fragile bodies through the power of laughter.
