The 7th Emergency Clown Nose® pick of the Holiday Season is Harold Lloyd. In this series I’m exploring the noble as well as ignoble clown. Each day through Christmas look for my posts of a different public figure that either delighted in playing the clown, or that the public has unfortunately chosen to paint as a clown.
I selected Harold Lloyd to be a part of a special series of historical figures that dedicated their lives to changing the world through the wisdom of humor. In his career Lloyd made more movies than either Chaplin or Keaton. He gained broad public success because his character represented the everyman.
Lloyd’s humor was always about the struggles of the common man. He believed, “The more trouble you get a man into, the more comedy you get out of him.”
