The Oxandabarats

Very popular in circus, great musicians and incredibly funny comedians. They had an elephant, Mara, and she would perform with them as the closing act in the circuses where they were hired. For the elephant act they would use straight make up, as trainers from India, with turbans and all. Great clowns.
