character LuLuBell the clown was born in 1996
after her developer, Ramona Parker, had raised
four children and completed her college degree
in Early Childhood Education. Ramona saw ads
in the local community college schedules for classes
on clowning and thought it would be refreshing
to take a class.
A Kansas City & Overland Park Area Professional Clown Performer for Kids birthday parties and events.
A seed had been planted years ago at a women's
conference where a women taught a class on the "healing power" of laughter as a clown, but Ramona
didn't not see how she could do that at that time
in her life. Then things began to change in her
life. She saw the opportunity to include clowning
in her life and took it.
She never realized where it would go or how her
background in business, teaching, special education
and directing pre-school could connect so well
She started taking classes, both local and national
including classes from some very well known local
performers in the clowning field. LuLu Bells
first experiences included birthday parties, parades
and a few stage shows with her local clown alley.
Then LuLuBell performed at nursing homes, preschools
and shopping malls. When she saw how much opportunity
there was and how it fit in with her life, she
decided it was time to become a full-time clown.
From that time, her business grew from one clown
character to many characters, as well as other
entertaining aspects for her performances. She
is continually reading, studying, watching, and
learning to improve her abilities. She strives
to give a professional look and performance to
all her customers whether it is family or corporate
event, no matter the number in attendance.
LuLuBells promise is to give each customer
only her best at each appearance. All performances
will be clean in body, language and spirit. The
end result is the experiences of her audiences,
of all ages and genders, be entertaining, enjoyable,
memorable and glad they were able to be a part
of the fun.
