Fubar: Our Star On the Grand Strand By Martha Smith A h o n k , the kick of a red and white polka dot leg and a bright red nose all signal the arrival of one of Charleston's happiest souls. She is Fubar, the city's official clown. Her name is an acronym for fouled up beyond all repair and, as Fubar, she epitomizes slapstick, pratfall, crossed-eyes clown humor. Beneath the yellow yarn pigtails, the red nose, baggy pants suit and crimson mittens is a woman whose musical talents and devotion to entertaining and uplifting the lives of her fellow Charlestonians have won countless friends and admirers. Fubar is Edythe H i l l Brigode, musician, comedienne, public servant. She has been Charleston's official clown since 1967, when the title was bestowed upon her by Mayor E1-. mer Dotson and city council. She explains why she wanted the aura of officialdom for her antics: "I like to entertain physically handicapped and retarded children, and I never charge for it. But I felt sort of silly calling up to offer my services and trying to explain that I'm Edythe Hill Brigode, alias Fu- bar the clown. So I wrote a letter to Mayor Dotson and council ,-isking them to make me the city's official clown and they did." The first time she donned a clown suit, Mrs. Brigode was hooked on the comedy form, a l t h o u g h the character of Fubar didn't evolve until some additional experimentation was completed. "One Christmas, they were hav- "ing'a chWreri's breaRfasTwith San- ta and they asked me to make music and wear a clown costume," she recalls. "I was amazed at how the children loved the clown. The next year they called me and I said. 'If I can, you'll have Fubar.' " Mrs. Brigode already had an idea of what she wanted Fubar to look like. ("I wanted her to look l i k e Raggedy Ann, but prettier," she jokes.) Her husband, A. E. "Bus" Brigode created the yellow yarn pigtailed wig and became Fubar's biggest fan. "When I worked for the 'Centennial commission in 1963," she adds, "he took me around to all the events where I played the accordion He has always supported my work in entertainment, even to the point of breaking up his vacation to accompany me around the state." Shortly after she was made Charleston's official clow in 1968, Mrs. Brigode was dispatched to Myrtle Beach, S.C., to take the mayor the key to West Virginia's capital city. "They had made Mayor Dotson an honorary citizen of M y r t l e Beach," she recollects, "and since I planned to vacation there, he asked me to take them the key to the city. When I got there. I dressed up as Fubar and told them I should be made an 'ornery citizen.' The mayor of Myrtle Beach insisted that I stay and, as Fubar, participate in the Sun Fun Festival, the year's biggest event at the beach." Mrs. Brigode has returned each year as Fubar, to direct many of the festival activities. This Thursday through Sunday, she'll be doing the honors again, clowning around ·at a variety of fam'ily-briejited entertainments. Capt. Kahgarod'-will ·-im CHARI.KSTON. W.VA.
