Clown College Overview

     Put all of the Class Clowns together in one class? A college just for clowns? Bizarre? Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Clown College, the worlds only college dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation's of the grand, glorious and gaffawrious art of clowning. (OK. So we made up "gaffarious". But the rest is true). A one-of-a-kind, never-before-attempted-or-attained-in-the-realm-of-human-possibility institution of higher hilarity, established in 1968. Only from Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey. Who else?

     We take our silliness seriously at Clown College. Really? Aren't people just "naturally funny"? Who needs specialized training in an academic atmosphere? What's to study? Mime. Slapstick. Juggling. Unicycle. Stiltwalking. Physical Comedy. Acrobatics. Improvisation. Dance. Water Spitting. And? The art of makeup application, a working knowledge of prop and costume construction. You think that you can buy those baggy pants and big shoes right off the rack? Also, check out the comedic masters of film, theater, and television.

     Find your inner clown character. Eight intense weeks of classes.Then, put on the greasepaint and show us your stuff at a 2 1/2 hour presentation. Actually, Producer Kenneth Feld is the one you have to impress. He individually selects students for contracts as apprentice clowns with The Greatest Show On Earth. Good luck!

All the world loves a clown, and we do too! Tickle the funnybone of America.

Oh... and don't even ask us, "How do you get all those clowns into that little car?"
