The Korn Patch Klowns welcomes you to the world of clowning in central Iowa.

Clowning is an old and well loved art.  Our alley is dedicated to improving the profession and its members.  We meet monthly to gather and share our knowledge of clowning.  If you have thought about being a clown, or just want to know more about making people laugh, come join us.  See the upcoming Events page for monthly program details.
