Slappy, Monday and their professional artistic colleagues use the power of humor and performance to reach and teach not only students from pre-kindergarten through 5th grade, but also kids with special needs and chronic illnesses.
Whether our performance is focused on teaching elementary school Math and Science Curriculum, providing Camp Comics to Camp John Marc or recruiting clowns for the growing business of Medical Clowning, we are always seeking to prove that humor helps people learn, heal and grow.
In school settings, our shows bring critical subjects to life with unique, engaging, funny and educational shows that ensure the concepts will stay with the kids long after we have finished our performance.
In hospitals, our use of humor and laughter empowers sick children and uplifts their environment tremendously. It also provides psychological benefits that translate into physical benefits
In camp settings, we engage kids with special needs kids and chronic illnesses through our performance outreach and education and help them to embrace their uniqueness.
