Curt Gunz (the owner of the site) is a friend of Professor QB. Some people have noticed that you never see Curt Gunz and Professor QB in the same room at the same time. Kind-a strange isn’t it?
Curt Gunz says that Professor QB worked his way through college delivering balloons in costume as a clown. Curt Gunz has been in full-time church ministry and Christian publishing for over 25 years and has a master’s degree in Biblical and Related Studies from Abilene Christian University (Abilene, Texas). But you are on this page to learn about the clown, not Curt Gunz.
A big part of the fun of ChurchFun.com is having Professor QB clowning around on this site. That is why we thought you would like to know a little bit about his clown background. At least as far as Curt Gunz knows about it.
Curt Gunz Tells About Professor QB’s Clown Training
Curt Gunz tells us that Professor QB wanted to be two things ever since he could remember. 1) A minister 2) A magician/clown
Curt Gunz got the training for the minister part but Professor QB needed help with the clown part. So…
The best clown training in the world is the famous Ringling Bros. “Clown College” but Curt Gunz tells us that Professor QB has a wife and four little clowns to feed so he could not drop everything and go off to Clown College.
But, he could bring Clown College to him. So he found the famous “Pricilla Mooseburger” who graduated from Clown College and performed with Ringling Bros. and Disney’s “Circus Fantasy” and attended her “Moose Camp Caravan.”
Every year he continues to hone his art at conventions, workshops and seminars (yes, clowns have seminars).
Professor QB has studied under Hall of Fame clown and Ringling Bros. Clown College instructor Leon “Buttons” McBryde; circus legend “Frosty” Little (one of only four clowns ever given the Ringling Bros. title of Master Clown).
He is a trained ventriloquist and has attended the largest ventriloquist convention in the world the Vent Haven ConVENTion near Cincinnati for three years.
He is an executive officer in his local “clown alley” chapter of the Clowns of America, International. Professor QB is a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
Curt Gunz informs us that Professor QB has taught dozens of others to clown and helped his alley teach a college course for aspiring clowns.
Where has Professor QB performed?
- Scout groups
- Children’s Hospitals
- Charitable Events
- Black Tie Fund Raisers
- For a Presidential Candidate
- Vacation Bible School Programs
and even in
- the world famous Houston Astrodome
But his most rewarding work has been the times he could cheer sick kids one on one with a visit to Texas Children’s Hospital
