Bas van Toor would live as a Clown Bassie as over again
Bas van Toor is proud of what he and his brother Aad have reached as Bassie and Adriaan. The clown and acrobat opened Friday, an exhibition about children’s television, which they are famous.
“If I would have to do, including all compelling, then I would again do so”, commented Bas van Toor in RTL Boulevard back on his life as a clown Bassie.
Aad van Toor has warm memories of the last avonturenserie of the duo Bassie and Adriaan on the trip to America. “I wanted as a child to America”, said the 74-year-old acrobat. “But we came from a poor family and my mother said: that will never work boy.”
Bas van Toor struggled the last few months with severe health problems. Now I can do it better with the 81-year-old clown, which is an autoimmune disease. “I can walk without crutches in the house, and for the rest, it is on the street to make do. I have a dear wife to me many rides and I have now a mobility scooter.”
