So You Want to Be a Clown?: Ringling Bros. Clown College Auditions

1 of 40



The Greatest Show on Earth, Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus rolled into Honda Center in Anaheim and held auditions to be a touring clown on August 2, 2011. A dozen and a half wannabe clowns auditioned for one spot for the Orange County and possibly Ontario performances of the circus. Performers joined in clown exercises, mime and improv to bribe the clown judges. All images by Christopher Victorio
