    First of all Im new, Im mike. Have done very little clowning but would love to do more. I recently watched a friend have the privelidge of performing in a local circus show. My favorite bit was when at the end, as an honorary/trainee clown, they saw fit to deliver a pie sandwich to her face. Made me realise that this classic is my fav!

    I have never been pied but i imagine in performance setting its lots of fun.

    What are your views on it? Are there any long standing clowns here who have never had a pie to the face? Those that use them, are you precious about the impact they have .e.g. stick or splat etc?

    Welcome Mike, Glad to have another newbie,
    I realize this is gonna probably get me creamed literally but I have never been pied. Just from what I have been told it should be soap like shaving cream not literally whipping cream cause that can turn sour up your nose, and remember to keep your mouth closed.

    I don't want pie in my face. I don't want to get dirty.

    If you meant that for me not long. See my start date here was June 2009. Not that I didn't dabble in in before then. I count that as my 'official' start date. I haven't been to many conventions or such. Just finally found an ally this summer so I guess it will probably be a coming. Not that it would be all that awful, I'm like Snoote, I won't rush it along. If it is part of a performance then fine. Otherwise I don't really see the point.

    I make pie casings from foam rubber, squirt on a little shaving cream, and I'm all ready

    I've never been pied either. I wouldn't be against it, but would like to know that it's coming.

    I had the opportunity to be pied this past November... here's what I learned:

    *Close your eyes and mouth, scrunch up your face
    *BLOW OUT through your nose and mouth when the pie hits (keeps the soap from going up your nose)
    *SCOOP the foam out of your eyes BEFORE opening them.
    *Make sure to shower after the pies fly... if the soap dries on your skin and you don't rinse it off, you'll get all rashy.

    Well I got the nose thing covered then, cause I have the uncanny ability to block my nostrils with my upper lip (I told you I was orally gifted). Old lifeguard trick. Now the eyes may be a different story.
