Rodeo Clown
Duane Reichert

Duane Reichert presents a performance genre unique to the culture of the American West—the rodeo clown. Reichert opens a dramatic, colorful world to students with the use of stylized make-up, traditional clown garb, comedy skits and animals. He will work with a core group of students to create their own interpretation of slapstick comedy skits for a school or community showcase. Reichert has performed for over six million rodeo fans throughout North America in over 40 years of experience as a rodeo clown. In 1996 and 1997, Reichert was chosen as the Barrelman Specialty Act at the First Frontier Circuit Finals Rodeo. In 2001 and again in 2002, he was an opening act at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. He is a 2002 honoree of the Casey Tibbs Foundation, and was a barrelman and specialty act at the 2005 Badlands Circuit Finals Rodeo.
