Circus Slang and how to use it

Bippo ran away with the circus
as a child. Today he speaks fluently
the secret circus language
of the big top's oldest families.
Read his story in Circus Mania.

"Vardi is look. Vardi the chat, as you point at something, means Look at that."
- Bippo the clown

Learn the slang of the circus, the superstitions of the big top and its many other secrets from the stars and showmen who live their lives in the sawdust circle. It's all in Circus Mania - The Ultimate Book For Anyone Who Dreamed of Running Away with the Circus by Douglas McPherson.

"A brilliant account of a vanishing art form." - The Mail on Sunday.
