Six celebrated entertainers became the first to enter the Clown Hall of Fame in Delavan, Wis. More than 300 people attended Sunday's ceremony in which Red Skelton, Lou Jacobs, Mark Anthony, Emmett Kelly Sr., Otto Griebling and Felix Adler were inducted. Master of ceremonies Steve Smith, who is also a clown, said the gathering provided clown fans a chance to give a "collective hug back to those who have given so much." The art of clowning is special because clowns share their experience directly with their audience and no two performances are alike, Smith said. Anthony and Jacobs accepted their awards in person while Skelton addressed the audience via a videotaped message.
