Clowning Around At Ringling Brothers Tryouts

1280771228070 Clowning Around At Ringling Brothers Tryouts

No big shoes, funny noses or white face paint were to be found at the Ringling Brother Tryouts. Instead, they focused on the inner clown. “You can teach people to juggle, you can teach them to tumble. But you can’t teach people to be funny,” said Ringling producer and executive vice president Nicole Feld. The current search’s objective is to find eight to 10 new clowns to spend a year refining their skills through 80 cities. Luckily, clown college  requires no tuition. In fact, all students are paid during their one-year apprenticeship and receive true on-the-job training by performing in shows.  Check out the video of their audition after the jump!
