Would you like NOT to have the usual Guy Fawkes Night?

Would you take a clown to a redundancy meeting?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Western Leader

Hey neighbours! An Auckland man has made international headlines after bringing a "support clown" to his redundancy meeting.

We had a chat with the man behind the wig to find out what it was like being NZ's first support clown, what balloon animals he made for the bosses, and what the reaction has been like since.

How do you reckon your manager would respond?
