Brad and his wife, Kuddles the clown, entertained at my granddaughter's 7th birthday party yesterday. The kids loved them both. The children were just the right age for magic -- they want to believe, yet they are a little skeptical. More than once, I heard one exclaim "How did he do that?" By enlisting several of the kids to act as assistants, he made the experience memorable for everyone watching. The act was appreciated by the adults, too, with many laugh-out-loud jokes.
I must say that Kuddles is the most accomplished artist I've seen paint faces. You won't be surprised to find that she majored in art in college. She knew how to paint all the latest Disney characters, and painted several unique variations in pink and black Monster High designs. She charmed one 5-year-old boy who is afraid of clowns, resulting in a magnificent green monster face. She paints designs you've never seen before, and does a superior job at it. I have no doubt that a dozen or so children begged to sleep with their new faces, and dozed off smiling.
