Personal Fact of Red Skelton

Red Skelton was one of the most illustrious faces of comedy world-over. In his long and comical career, he came to be known as The Sentimental Clown and America’s Clown Prince for his emotionally-intricate comedy routines. He initially started off as a comedian for troubadour or burlesque shows and soon gained popularity with large audiences. His career slowly began to ascend as he got more shows on the radio and television and eventually began appearing in films.

The son of a circus clown, Skelton went on to become one of the most-loved comedians in America and he owed it all to his family, without whom he believed, he would have never been bitten by the showbiz bug. He hit the road as a full-time entertainer, working in medicine shows and revue acts to grandstands and circuses. Today, his name is synonymous with 20th century American comedy and he is remembered by his contemporaries and audiences for his memorable roles such as, Clem Kaddiddlehopper and George Appleby.

Although his career was a fertile one, life on the personal front was not very successful. After two divorces and a personal loss, he became more of a social recluse which went on to affect his career. He was also a supporter of a number of children’s charities.
