Surprise Hospital Visit, Funny

Not long ago I was visiting someone in the hospital, and all of a sudden we were surprised by an unexpected visit.

A clown, a medical clown.

Medical clowning is becoming a very popular profession or hobby in Israel.  Lots of people, young and old, are taking courses.  In Israel it's now very common to find clowns wandering around hospitals visiting the wards, waiting rooms etc.

I'm pretty sure that they volunteer in the hospital, but I do know that some use their clowning skills, including balloon blowing/shaping, as children's party and event entertainers, which can make them money.

The performance is in Hebrew.
