Crystal Goss spent a day with the Children’s Funnyatrics clowns. Following is her account of the experience.
I knew the clowns from the Children’s Funnyatrics Program were going to be funny. I mean, they are clowns.
We asked them to hang out with us for a behind-the-scenes photo and video shoot for the second season of the hospital’s documentary Children’s Med Dallas. As expected, they were FUNNY. So funny. Our group – consisting of a videographer, creative director, support staff and photographers – were all in stitches laughing at their goofy antics and general silliness, from kazoo-playing to dancing. One of the products of that silliness was an impromptu song about Children’s Med Dallas, which you can watch below.
The thing I didn’t expect though was the heart that our clowns would bring to the shoot, the heart they bring to their work every day. Beyond the silly, our clowns are really all about healing by the power of laughter. And they love working with our patients and staff. Take a look for yourself at the funny and serious moments during our shoot with these clever and compassionate clowns.
Catch the clowns’ cameo on Children’s Med Dallas at 6:30 p.m. this Saturday on WFAA Channel 8.
