All through elementary and high school, Mary was the proverbial class clown. In 1999, she enrolled in a UT Arlington Continuing Education clowning class. She had never met a "clown" before, even though she had always been one at heart and at birth. The instructor wanted class members to come up with a clown name, thus, "Mary Canary" was born. This is also her stage name. In 2000 or 2001, she started "clowning" as a hobby, and in 2003, became a professional, performing at birthday parties for kids. Mary has been working with puppets for many yrs. She is a "natural" ham. Natural, not "cured". The advice she gives to new "clowns" or family entertainers is that it's not all about the costume, although you want to look nice, it's more about the entertainment value and the impact you have on people your'e entertaining at any given moment. For a birthday party or balloon gig, for the most part, Mary is donned in a clown costume. For most all puppet shows, Mary wears a colorful shirt and black denim jeans. Mary is a member of a local clown alley in Arlington and has won awards in parade and skit competitions at the TX Clown Assoc convention and Clown Jam in Branson, MO. She is also a home health medical social worker.
