Kelano the Clown was the main character in the film “The Laughter Man” an early 1970s (Unreleased) Film by comedy performer Duke Kinsey.
Kinsey wrote, directed and starred in the film that remained unreleased at the time of his death (and still unreleased to this day). A recently discovered interview with the performer by journalist Celia West provided a very small insight into the making of the film and the reasons for its incompletion (funding being sited as the main barrier). Described in the interview by Kinsey as “Doing something for and about comedy that has never happened before.” the film is much sought after by fans, academics, comedy experts and film historians alike but at the time of writing has yet to be located. The Duke Kinsey Archive was founded in 2016 after a significant amount of material related to the performer was uncovered at the Birmingham and Midland Institute (believed to be the location of the film) and it is hoped that within the many files and boxes ascribed to Kinsey the film will one day come to light.
