Sean Carlock has been entertaining since age six. Theater, Magic, and — in the last decade — Clowning have always been his passion. The only thing he loves more than Clowning is talking about and teaching Clowning to others. Sean draws from his magic and theater background as well as his time as a Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey clown to bring you his spin on the world of clowning.

In Sean’s own words: I started my entertainment career as a magician. Over the years I have performed magic, theater, and clowning. I have never considered myself to be a magician, actor or a clown. I am an entertainer that uses these things to achieve my goal of entertaining an audience. Shortly after I began clowning I met Jim Howle at a clowning convention and he suggested I give Ringling a call. He put me in touch with them and I spent the next year of my life touring the country with the Greatest Show on Earth. It was a great learning experience and the first real training I had ever had access to. Since Ringling I have gone on to a career of full time clowning and teaching all over the US. I am honored to be on the Mooseburger Camp staff. It is very rewarding to be able to work with the campers that come each year. I love seeing the excitement on their faces as they pull up each year. There is nowhere else to receive the amount of training, from the caliber of instructors, which is available at Mooseburger Camp. If there is anything that the past 20+ years of performing has taught me it is to surround yourself with successful people in your field. Mooseburger Camp is the perfect place to do that.
I wish I had known about Moose Camp when I was getting started, it would have made the journey so much easier.
Sean’s Main Course: Advanced Show Creation
This course will give you the opportunity to walk out of Moose Camp with a full, ready-to-rehearse show complete with introductions and music pre-recorded puppet scripts, and the confidence to get out there and do it. This clinic will help you put it all together in a cohesive way that will boost your professional image. This is not just for clowns! This could be for magicians, jugglers, or other comedy stage acts! You must provide all of the material and props needed to do the show. This means you either have to drive with a car full of awesome to camp (ROAD TRIP!) or box it up ahead of time and mail it. We will do little to no actual writing of material. Intros and possibly puppet scripting for recording purposes but you MUST have 5 to 10 solid pieces already written. They can be interactive songs or stories or magic tricks or a juggling routine, etc, etc. This will take some work and prior planning on your part but will be WELL worth the effort!
