Silly Walkways is directly inspired by The Monty Python Flying Circus skit: The Ministry of Silly Walks. No worries if you’re not familiar with these comic geniuses, this is a chance for everyone to have a light moment in the middle of the street. Clarity Brown is the clown who will encourage you to get down and get back up again as you get from point A to point B. Let’s hope that life imitates this art of light-hearted foolishness.
