Andy, "Smiley," has been clowning since 1984 when he did a Father's Day picnic at his church. He is a member of Clowns of America International (COAI), World Clown Association (WCA), Texas Clown Association (TCA) where he has served as Area Director and Sergeant at Arms and Cowtown Clown Alley#135. He has been awarded the prestigious Ceslee Conkling Award given by Cowtown Clowns along with the coveted Al Armstrong Award presented by Mid-Cities Clowns. In 2003 he won the TCA Ambassador of Clowning Award.
Andy has shared his love of clowning for many years through clown ministry, training schools, conventions, local alleys and his own clown business. His greatest skill lies in clown magic.
Rhea, "Sweet Pea," started clowning in 1993. She is also a member of COAI, WCA, TCA, and Cowtown Clown Alley #135. Sweet Pea performs in magic shows with Smiley and also enjoys face painting.
Rhea and Andy opened Kudos in 1994 to create a store that would enable clowns to have all the supplies needed in one simple location. This eliminates the need to travel from place to place to obtain clown supplies. If their shelves do not hold that special item you are looking for they can order it for you.
"When you buy your supplies from us you are dealing with other clowns."
-- Andy "Smiley" & Rhea "Sweet Pea" Anderson.
