Larry Harmon, Bozo the Clown, dies at 83

Larry Harmon (January 2, 1925 – July 3, 2008) was an American entertainer, best-known as Bozo the Clown.

Together with a group of investors, Harmon purchased the licensing rights to the Bozo character from Capitol Records. Harmon marketed the Bozo property aggressively. By the late 1950’s Harmon had created local Bozo TV shows in nearly every major U.S. market, and across the world in places as far away as Thailand, Greece and Brazil.
