Come Celebrate The 50th Anniversary Of BOZO The Clown

Posted by Levine Communications Office on August 17, 2010

In The Man Behind the Nose: Assassins, Astronauts, Cannibals, and Other Stupendous Tales, Larry “Bozo” Harmon and co-author Thomas Scott McKenzie recall some pretty crazy tales about America’s most iconic and beloved clown.

Did you hear the one about when Bozo ran for President and survived two assassination attempts?

How about the time Bozo flew into the perilous jungles of New Guinea to see if he could not just survive but actually bond with dangerous cannibal tribes?

Well then, you must know about the time his size 83 AAA shoes saves him from being swallowed whole by a giant, murderous python in Thailand, right?

Did you know there was a 10-year wait list for tickets to the Bozo television show?

Come celebrate the 50th anniversary of Bozo the Clown with a book signing of The Man Behind the Nose! The signing will be held at 4PM this Sunday, August 22 at Book Soup in Los Angeles. Special guests include co-author Thomas Scott McKenzie and Mrs. Larry Harmon, wife of the late Larry Harmon. The signing will feature Bozo memorabilia and maybe even play The Grand Prize Game!

The Man Behind The Nose

Posted by Levine Communications Office on August 10, 2010

Bozo the Clown is arguably the most famous clown in the world. The man behind the nose and outrageous makeup goes by the name of Larry Harmon. As famous as Larry BOZO Harmon may be for entertaining children, his silly antics, and comical appearance, you may not know as much as you think about this iconic character. For example, did you know that Bozo the Clown ran for president and that two assassination attempts were made on his life?

In his new book, written with Thomas Scott McKenzie, “The Man Behind the Nose: Assassins, Astronauts, Cannibals, and Other Stupendous Tales”, Larry Harmon shares things he would have never dared to tell when you were younger and allows us to fully understand the world of Bozo the Clown. “The Man Behind the Nose: Assassins, Astronauts, Cannibals, and Other Stupendous Tales” is published by the Igniter Literary Group and includes an introduction by Neil Strauss and Anthony Bozza.

“Sure, you know the giant shoes, the red bulbous nose, the big ruby smile, and the twin shocks of red yak-hair bursting from the sides of his head. And obviously you know the many clowns inspired by him, from Ronald McDonald to Krusty the Clown. So perhaps it’s time you learned about Bozo, and the man behind the nose. Because the wild, inspirational stories in this book are all true. As real as the nose on your face.”

I was headed for a white lab coat and stethoscope until a jazz singer in makeup pointed me in a direction that would lead to a red nose and wig.

I’m surrounded by laughter. If you’re with me you’ll notice giggling, chuckling, laughing, snickering, and cackling. Those sounds of joy are like music to me, symphonies of happiness.

Few things on this planet burn as quickly as heavily processed yak hair. And when that hair extends about nine inches from either side of your head and is curved upright, thus forming a bowl, that any stray spark or floating cinder can ignite it. One minute I’m joking around, the next I’m a human tiki torch.

Sometimes in like, certain doors open. And if you walk through them, things will never be the same.

For such a graceful man, famous for being so light on his feet, he sure made a lot of noise as he walked across the empty sound stage. Or maybe that was just my heart pounding.

I knew I wanted to leave my mark on this earth. Ultimately I decided that was best achieved by wearing size 83 triple-A red shoes. because people would never be able to forget the marks of those footprints. But it took a while to reach that conclusion.
