Rules Corky Lives By:

  • Kindness and love to everyone! I always treat people with kindness, always!!! I believe kindness and love is the way to treat people everyday
    of our lives. It's why we are here!
  • The opportunity to influence a child and make them feel important and special is my goal. In this crazy world, it is easy to feel overlooked or invisible. My goal is to connect with children so they leave
    feeling important.
  • My job as a clown is to lift people up and make them feel proud of themselves and special and to put a smile on their faces and a memory
    they will hold in their hearts forever.

Q&A With Corky!

About my life as Corky and some frequently asked questions:
I must say it got into me. I love the way children go into their imagination and I wanted to be a part of making that real for them.
Yes, I have two children. A girl Daisy and a boy, Corbin. They have inspired some characters I do such as Fairy Lily and Cute Boots the Pirate.
Yes, I am married to a very talented children’s entertainer and artist, Jeff Mangum, who is also Arty the clown. I influenced his choice to become a clown and he has surpassed my expectations. He is GREAT!!! He also draws caricatures and paints murals. The caricatures are a great addition to a party or company event, fall festival, or spring fling. Please look at his work!
The answer is always the same! 10 years and it will never change. I have been a clown longer but I don’t want to make myself seem old because I am not!!

Yes and No. My college background is in theatre and communications but my real education comes from the kids in the world.

I don’t feel I can connect to the children. That is better for festivals but not a person’s birthday where you want to make a connection with the audience.

Don't forget Corky's friend Arty the Clown!

“I’m a wild silly clown that likes to clown around. I do AMAZING magic tricks, but there’s always some Birthday kid messing up my tricks and making me look really silly.”
