Carlee and Charlie are in reality Sherri and
David Shepherd. They have been clowning around together since
1995. Married and with four grown children, Sherri was the first to
get involved with clowning, but it eventually proved to be contagious
and David got involved as well.
The couple work together performing their act
in a variety of venues. While they specialize in children's
birthday parties, they also entertain at schools, churches, parades
and many community events. They have made regular visits to
residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities as part of
Circus Sarasota's "humor therapy" clown group, Laughter Unlimited.
This is their second year of working with the
Kelly Miller Circus as their promoters. The Shepherds are not
a part of the actual circus.
