A man on a mission, a clown with a vision
Today, the 36-year-old is genuinely happy, feeding off the endorphins released during his workouts. His sleep cycles are peaceful, and he wakes up feeling like a champion who can achieve a lot more. He is still living with an addiction, albeit a healthy one: children’s laughter. “Seeing them roll on the floor, having them come and hug me at the end of a show, these are very touching moments that are dear to me.”
Edmund is also driven to up the profile of Singapore’s clowning sector. When he first started out, he studied under the tutelage of Singapore’s second Ronald McDonald, whose identity is largely kept secret. He is the only disciple born out of this bloodline, and so the onus of preserving his teacher’s legacy falls squarely on him.
