Send in the clowns! Well, maybe just this one.

Full disclosure: I hate clowns. They freak me the f*** out! I don't know why either? Maybe it's from a clown that spooked me from a birthday party, or maybe it's because I watched the Stephen King movie "IT" when I was just a tad too young? All I know is that I will never expose my kids to them in the same room as me as long as I'm around.

Whew.

OK, now having said that I will say there's ONE clown I could probably stand being in the same room with - however, maybe just in the way, way back. Puddles the Clown, from America's Got Talent fame is making an appearance in Austin next weekend.

Puddles Pity Party, featuring the 'sad clown with the golden voice' is known for singing pop anthems with tear-jerking bravura will be at the Paramount Theatre on Saturday, August 25 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM.

Here's a taste of what to expect from ol' Puddles:
