Caleb Kors “Flip” was a very brave young performer. People that saw and worked with him talked about how he could go where professional performers are afraid. He was always changing and advancing this act. He started performing in the Bellingham green market near his mother’s booth where she sold jewelry and other items.

To Caleb Kors “Flip”
One day when the prophet Elijah was standing in the market place, a friend came up to him and asked: “is there anybody in this multitude who will have a share in the world to come?” Elijah looked about him and with a sigh answered, “no.” Then he looked about again and pointed to two men who had just entered the marketplace and were making their way through the crowd. “These two men will have a share in the world to come.” “What is their occupation and what have the done to deserve it?” Asked Elijah’s friend. “They are clowns,” Elijah replied “and when they see people troubled in mind or heavy with sorrow they make them laugh, and when they meet people who quarrel, they make peace between them.” Babylonian Talmud- Ta’Anit
