On Saturday, July 2nd Jellyboy The Clown of The Squidling Brothers was caught in a non-performance related fire in his friend’s Queens apartment. He’s presently in critical, but stable condition and can use any and all of our wishes and prayers.
I’ve had the wonderful pleasure of getting to know Jelly Boy, as well as counting him amongst one of my friends. He’s as genuine a gent as you can get and a truly dedicated performer. I, for one, can attest to it that I’m not sure I’ve ever seen him sans-make up. On stage, and off stage, he’s as charming as one can get, and we’re always honored to have him, and the rest of the Squidlings, here with us in Chicago.
As with many performers, Jelly Boy does not have ample enough insurance to help with the needed medical costs. If you’re in New York definitely check out this show, it’s happening July 15th at Leyla’s in Brooklyn. Here in Chicago we, too, are working on some events. Doubly, you can always go to the PayPal Donation Page to help out. Every little bit does.
Much love Jelly Boy, we’re all rooting for you.
