So, here's a rough outline of my day... the circus show happens twice a day. The second Circus Show is after the Ring of Illusions Magic Show. Spoiler alert -medium. After both Circus Shows and the Ring of Illusions Magic Show I have a face painting set. -That's 3 sets a day... All of these acts and occurances will be refered to in later posts... again -just setting the pace for future blogs.
Catch it at 9:30am! I tell my life story, tidbits about make-up and clowning in general, and I display a full transformation into the poster clown for Circus World Museum 2009 -Roger the Clown!
*THE BOOM-BOX GAG.
I come out into the ring with a boom-box. With a little help from a volunteer I figure things out. I plug the boom-box in (get electricuted) and break into "goofy dancing" to such classics as "I Feel Good"-James Brown... "The Mexican Hat Dance"... and "Quando Quando Quando". A newsflash comes on informing of an escaped gorilla -I get attacked! Then the ringmaster saves the day.
*THE WILD WEST SHOWDOWN. (CLOWN SPOT ALTERNATE #1)
Clown hosts a squirtgun showdown with an audience member.
*KARATE GAG. (CLOWN SPOT ALTERNATE #2)
A cinder block breaking display -as Roger the Clown shows off his karate skills with another volunteer from the audience.
*CHAIR GAG. (NO VOLUNTEER/EMERGENCY GAG)
I come out and announce an intermission and go to read a paper. Yet I have a rough go with the chair and the newspaper and before I can get comfortable the "intermission" is over --"GALL-BLANG-IT-DANG-GUM-IT!"
Ring of Illusions Magic Show--
Light classics as "Is this your card?", "The vaporizing water!", and "Pulling a rabbit from the hat" are attempted... poorly.
