Ooopsy and Amy’s Bio
My name is Amy Tinoco, I created Ooopsy the Wonder Clown.
In the beginning I honed my talents by practicing on my children as I home schooled them. For the past 15 years I continue to study the art of clowning, puppets, storytelling and acting.
I accomplished many of my goals such as President of the Puppet Guild of Greater Miami, competing in the World Clown Association, hosting a 12 part series on WLRN on the history of puppetry, writing two books, songs, producing four educational videos, and marching in the Disney World Parade in Orlando! What a dream come true!
Hard work and the love of performing have made me one of South Florida’s most sought after performers, my shows are not only dynamic and fun they provide fun-filled opportunities to learn valuable life lessons on everything from good manners to patriotism.
I believe in instilling positive self-esteem so they know whole-heartedly that they are Terrific!
I speak fluent Spanish so my performances usually encompass content in both English and Spanish. To continue to insure the artistic caliber of my act I continue to take classes in acting workshops,improv, standup comedy at the world famous Improv and Universal Academy in South Beach.
Currently I have been casting for commercials and voice overs (English & Spanish) Twice a year I work on Royal Caribbean Cruises, and have had the honor of performing in 3 different countries!
I not only attend private parties and corporate events, but also devote time to performing at community-wide events that benefit those less fortunate. The annual Ooopsy Birthday Bash benefiting a child, family or organization that helps at risk kids is an example of the big difference I try to make in our community
