Avruch played Bozo the Clown from 1959 to 1970, a clown character particularly popular in the U.S. in the 1960s because of widespread franchising in television. Avruch became the first nationally-syndicated Bozo the Clown.

okay, but there was more than one bozo, two before avruch played bozo in 1959. i grew up watching bozo the clown in chicago, but i honestly don't know which bozo that was. i mean, he had wild red hair and . . . i don't think the bozo i started out with was avruch. i think i was watching bozo before he did it. whatever . . . r.i.p.

Some real gems along these lines on Twitter.

The Bozo that died was the Boston Bozo. The One True Bozo is the late Bob Bell, seen here smoking with Mayor Jane Byrne.

Truth. Still. Always sad when we lose a Bozo.
