Harmon created the popular character Bozo the Clown. You know - giant shoes, bulbous red nose, big red grin, and spiky red hair erupting from the sides of his head. Bozo became a cultural icon, and was part of a huge TV franchise. The story of an amazing dedication and work ethic.
The Man Behind the Nose is the autobiography of the man who was Bozo. For 50 years Larry Harmon was the face-and the nose-of Bozo the Clown, the most well-known, beloved clown of them all, the precursor for every successful modern-day harlequin to come, from Ronald McDonald to Krusty. A warm, surprising, and endlessly entertaining life story filled to the brim with "Assassins, Astronauts, Cannibals, and Other Stupendous Tales," The Man Behind the Nose is a rollicking ride through the world of a true American icon in greasepaint.
