Windsor Comic Cons and GlassMonkey Studios proudly announce our next very special RetroRama guest - the legendary Bozo the Clown himself, Mr. Art Cervi! From 1967 to 1980, Cervi played Bozo for Detroit and Windsor audiences and was syndicated across the country, including stints on CKLW-TV, and later, Detroit's WJBK-TV.
With his ring of flaming red hair, floppy white bib and treasure chest of toys, it was this Bozo who became a treasured childhood memory to millions of fans throughout this area and abroad - in fact, at the end of Bozo’s run, there was a five-year waiting list to get on his show!
Now retired (but still enjoying his classic cars) Cervi will offer RetroRama fans a rare chance to meet the man behind the makeup, as well as having his original Bozo costume and other nostalgic items on display! Cervi will be selling and signing copies of his book, “I Did What?” detailing his Bozo experiences and beyond, including later becoming the producer of the highly successful Swingin' Time dance show starring Robin Seymour. Please give a warm welcome to Art Cervi!
