5 Funny Circus Jokes for International Clown Week, August 1 - 7, 2016
"DID I ever tell you I used to work in the circus?
Didn’t have an act as such but I was the only one who could get the tent back into the bag.
My dad was the stilt walker (I always looked up to him) and my mum was the world’s worst knife thrower’s assistant. She faced the axe every week.
My uncle was the human cannonball. He got fired (after a dispute about travelling expenses) and the act was never the same again.
They couldn’t find another man of his calibre."
If that makes you laugh, click here for more of the same in a very funny review of the Moscow State Circus by Tam Cowan in the Daily record.
- Loved by Clowns!
The funniest stories about the circus, though, are the true ones. Read them in Circus Mania - The Ultimate Book For Anyone Who Dreamed of Running Away With The Circus. As one customer review on Amazon put it: "Circus Mania is one of those rare non-fiction books you end up reading as if it were a novel. Great characters and plot and beautifully written descriptions." And as another buyer put it: "I really love this book. Every page buzzes with memorable characters. There are so many different stories, some funny, some sad, all fascinating." Click here to buy Circus Mania from Amazon.
