Hello & Welcome; Thank you for visiting Cowpaty - Pro Rodeo Clown, Entertainer & Barrelman

Garrett Wilson aka Cowpaty is an entertainer commonly known as a rodeo clown. Cowpaty began his rodeo clown career in 2010 at 11 years of age at a small, local, biweekly rodeo in his hometown of Burnsville, NC and perfected his character and craft for 8 years and in the years following demand rose for Cowpaty's character and style of comedy and started getting more and more phone calls requesting him to work bigger professional rodeos for numerous professional rodeo associations throughout the Southeast and Northeast entertaining audiences with an old school style of comedy involving a lot of slapstick, quick wits, and crowd interaction. Cowpaty also entertains audiences with his high energy, family friendly comedy acts that appeal to any audience whether they're six or eighty-six.


You can find Cowpaty in the arena, along the fence during rodeos entertaining crowds or up in the stands involving audiences in his jokes and always available during an unexpected delay in the show entertaining the crowds, and always in the clown barrel when the bull riding rolls around that serves as an "island of safety" for the bullfighters and the bullriders during the event. Clowns today are changing fast but Cowpaty holds on to the core of the Rodeo Clown as it was designed years ago.


A rodeo clowns job is to ensure that the audience is entertained throughout the duration of the rodeo during dead spots and during lulls through the performance. Rodeo is an unpredictable sport where anything can happen and during those unpredictable moments and it's the duty of a rodeo clown to fill that dead spot with a piece of comedy to ensure the performance flows smoothly and the audience doesn't go without entertainment during that lull. Cowpaty likes to refer himself as the glue of the rodeo because he acts as the glue when there's a lull to glue that piece together with a piece of comedy. The attendees of the rodeo pay a ticket price to get into the rodeo and it's Cowpaty's responsibility that the audience gets their money worth. The world now is filled with all kinds of bad news, troubles, and hardships and as a performer we don't know what the people in those stands are going through in their life's and to allow them to sit back, relax, and laugh and allow them to possibly forget about the problems that's going on in their life is just the ultimate.

The Clown’s Prayer


As I stumble through this life,
help me to create more laughter than tears,
dispense more cheer than gloom,
spread more cheer than despair.


Never let me become so indifferent,

that I will fail to see the wonders in the eyes of a child,
or the twinkle in the eyes of the aged.


Never let me forget that my total effort is to cheer people,

make them happy, and forget momentarily,
all the unpleasantness in their lives.


And in my final moment,

may I hear You whisper:
“When you made My people smile,
you made Me smile.”
