On August 6th our castaway was Randy Judkin who once ran in the Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race while juggling three balls the entire 6.2 miles. He finished the race under an hour and he did not drop a ball. Randy is a humor consultant who not only talks the talk, but walks the walk. He is a professional character comedian, a practitioner of humor who entertains his audiences while delivering poignant messages on coping with change. He focuses everyone’s attention on the opportunity to cultivate a sense of joy in being alive, to overcome the stress that keeps us from living fully, and to develop strategies for more levity in our personal and professional lives. Additionally, Randy is a unique inspirational speaker and comedian who founded the comedy trio "the Maine Hysterical Society". He's also a clown and has instructed at the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey’s Clown College in Florida, and has served as a character consultant for Tri-Star Pictures and a Circus of the Stars trainer in Hollywood.
