Kevin Clash Ð 9 CHARACTERS

CHARACTERS ✓ My Life as a Furry Red Monster What Being Elmo Has Taught Me About Life Love and Laughing Out Loud And learn and love as the very special character he brings to life You will discover how young Kevin honed his talent entertaining the kids in his mother's home day care with puppets he made from slippers and coat liners; how as a struggling young artist he realized his dream to meet and then work for his idol Muppet creator Jim Henson; and how each and every da. When children tell Elmo that they love him they all have different styles of expressing their emotion Some of the demonstrative kids throw their arms around his neck snuggle their faces against his and with an eyes closed sigh heaving hand me my Tony Award gesture that projects to the very last row of the theater s balcony they proclaim their undying devotion to Elmo in prose as purple as Telly Monster Oh Elmo I love you than chocolate ice cream More than I love the new baby Please come and live in my house forever Older kids are a little matter of fact as if they ve been married for twenty years and they re picking up their keys and their bag and heading out the door with an affectionate but perfunctory Love you Still others are shy and reserved like the bashful and nervous teen letting his or her feelings be known to their crush for the first time I often wonder how these children will express their love as adults and how many of them will remain demonstrative and unembarrassed or if they ll naturally pull back into conservative styles as they grow older It would be ridiculous if we all greeted each other the way the enthusiastic kids greet Elmo imagine how long it would take to get that first cup of coffee at the office with all the morning greetings in full swing but still doesn t imagining a love filled world like that put a smile on your face Pages 16 17Elmo puts a smile on my face Because he puts a slow growing massive bright smile across my 15 month old son Sam s face whenever he catches his first glimpse of Elmo on Sesame Street on a DVD in a book or in passing a toy store display My friend Stacy informed me a while back that there is a certain age when the Elmo switch goes off in the toddler world For Sammy that age was about 14 12 months Without his buddy Elmo s musical DVD I discovered at the library I would never get a shower in the morning This normally distracted toddler with the attention span of a flea will sit and play uietly with his books and a few toys for 45 minutes straight as long as Elmo is singing to him My prior experience with Elmo was that obnoxious laugh on the Tickle Me Elmo doll decades ago Now I am oddly drawn to that laugh his presence and magnetism I became infatuated with learning as much as possible about this furry little dudeAnd so I recalled the title of a memoir written by the person who performs Elmo that I learned of through a Goodreads friend many years before Through their review of this book I discovered that Elmo was performed by a very tall black guy with a deep voice I don t know who I thought gave life to Elmo but that certainly wasn t my first guess Kevin Clash was obsessed with puppets and TV as a young child than I was I love love love puppets I can totally relate to how Kevin used them to overcome his shyness as a boy They provide a perfect front for everything you want to express but are afraid to otherwise However Kevin didn t drop his interest when he grew older and was an easy target as the weirdo who played with dolls He lived for puppets and the art of performance He studied people and artists He experimented with his mother s daycare kid audiences He created puppets out of discarded materials He was destined to be Elmo And his family s never wavering support of his dream propelled it into realityWhen my son Sam s Elmo switch was turned on I sat and hung out with Elmo too I needed to know how muppeteer Kevin Clash experienced Elmo s world This memoir tells a very nice tale of Kevin s supportive childhood and determined rise to the pinnacle of puppetry Sesame Street There aren t any ghosts in this closet No troubled past to overcome No addictions other than to puppets A good man has been rewarded by having the ability to be Elmo on a daily basis It is rewarding to him not because of the financial gain or critical acclaim It is rewarding to him because Elmo gives him a vehicle to experience what I do whenever Sammy sees Elmo again Pure love delight and devotion I cannot fathom how amazing it would be to get to be the reason behind that each day when encountering children from around the worldMaybe I shouldn t have shied away from my puppet love Because the moments that Kevin shares of Elmo s encounters with his fans to highlight the various tenants of Elmo s World love joy creativity tolerance courage friendship cooperation learning and optimism made me all mushy inside He parallels these interactions with tales from his own life lessons and how they shaped his beliefs and eventually became a part of Elmo s performanceThe book has the assist of writer Gary Brozek to better convey Kevin s thoughts but I still found them to be a bit simple and choppy in structure The book shines brightest when covering Elmo s reach rather than Kevin s past But I appreciate learning about both Because Elmo isn t Elmo without Kevin And now Kevin is really just along for Elmo s ride laughing all the way at the joy introduced as a result I know this for sure Sammy would love to wrap his arms around that furry red monster and burrow his laughing face in for a long hug So would IADDENDUM Not long after my review

bigger than Kevin Clash and the character has and will continue to be presented proudly At this time Kevin s creation of Elmo is still all that is seen on PBS due to a full season recording in the bank when scandal erupted I am sure understudies will emerge to continue Elmo s exuberance and message just as Henson s muppets live on with others taking over his voice But it saddens me to know that Clash hid behind a puppet while presenting a partial memoir in this book I don t think Elmo is a pervert I don t fault Clash s identity as a gay man But I have a problem with adults engaging in relationships with minors no matter how close they are to the legal age of acceptance We still love Elmo in our home Because despite the discoveries about Elmo s essential creator his furry face smile
