I was always a fan of Red Skelton's Freddie the Freeloader character but it was after meeting Emmett Kelly Jr. in 1992, and seeing how well others took to his hobo character, that I decided to make the switch from Auguste Clown to Hobo/Tramp Clown.

I had always wanted a whimsical, down-home style character and the free-spirited happy-go-lucky attitude of the hobo seemed to fit perfectly,

I made the switch back in '92 and haven't changed since.

Suitcase Sam vs. Kelly's

I personally love both Emmett Kelly Jr. and Emmett Kelly Sr. I saw Suitcase Sam at a party once and I think he has a fantastic personality!
