Trying out for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus
Posted February 21, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — When you were a child, did you ever just want to run away and join the circus?
Well I got a chance to try out for Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey's Built to Amaze, which plays PNC Arena through Sunday. Let's just say, I think I need to go to clown college.
Check out the videos to see how I fared as a ringmaster, tumbler, King Charles unicycle rider and clown.
Clown Fact: It is really is a huge honor to be a Ringling Bros. clown. There are only 26 spots available in all three touring shows. Many tryout each year and only a few get selected.
