Get inside the head of a rodeo clown. Check Friday's Advocate for a Q&A with the veteran entertainer.
Leon Coffee has been clowning for more than four decades.
Though he's retired from touring with the PBR Association, he still makes time to entertain.
He'll be in the arena doing his thing at the Touring Pro Division PBR event in Goliad on Saturday.
The legendary rodeo clown isn't dancing with the bulls anymore, but he does spend his time making the audiences laugh and the children smile.
His career took him all over the United States, and he also spent time in abroad in different countries.
"All of them are great to me as long as I make it out alive," he said.
When he dons that green hat and that unchanged face paint he's worn his entire career, the audience is sure to get a good show.
And since he doesn't fight bulls anymore, he stays busy getting the crowd excited about the show. But if there is a bull nearby, he said the first thing he'll be doing is running.
"I'm not jumping into anything but the crowd now," he said laughing.
