My name is Michael Abbot. I never really saw myself as being a rent-a-clown as I
grew up… well, as I got older since I don’t think I really grew up. My job and my life
revolves around entertaining and making people happy. If you’re smiling after one of my
performances then I know that I did my job. Most people want to become doctors or lawyer. I find my calling in making people smile and happy. I learned this about myself when my best
friend, Chris, was in a car accident. He lost the use of both of his legs. This meant that a
lot of things we use to do is impossible now. There was one thing that I still could do
though, and that was make Chris smile. I've always had this gift that I could make
people smile regardless of how they felt. Except Jessica.
Jessica could be very serious at times and that’s something I just can’t
do. She took my lack of seriousness as an insult against her instead of a flaw in myself. I
can’t take things seriously; everything is a joke. there’s always a punchline. If something

Thick and thin. Josh, we haven’t always seen eye to eye but I want you to know that I
love you like a brother and know you feel the same. Jessica, I know it didn’t work out,
and that’s my fault…I’m sorry. Mom... Dad, you guys were great. I never told you guys
how much I appreciated everything you’ve ever done for me. I love you guys. Good bye.
