BIOGRAPHY

DJ Magic Don Formal Wear

My name is Donald Carpenter and I am dedicated to the Art of Entertainment.

I started magic when I was 9 years old and started clowning when I was 11 years old.

At the age of 13, I met Hal “Shorty” Horton, a Professional Clown with accolades such as, International Clown of The year, National Clown for the Leukemia Society & much more.

Hal took me on as an apprentice and he taught me the Art of Clowning, including how to properly apply my makeup, slapstick, how to properly approach children and the use of props.

I became a Professional Magic Clown at the age of 14. I was the youngest member to join Alley 107 of the Clowns of America, which later became Clowns of America International.

Odd-Ball The Magic Clown

Over the years I became involved with the Lucille Ball Community Theater in Jamestown, NY, where I assisted in Audio/Visual and Set Construction. I was also a Stage Hand, Actor and Prop Handler. I was also a Magic Consultant for the production of Damn Yankees at the Hartford Stage Company, in Hartford, CT.

Although I never stopped performing, I reopened my entertainment business in 2016 and I now apply my talents to enhance events while making them fun and memorable.
