CLOWN ALLEY Ringling 1965




Ed Wynn performs a teeterboard gag with members of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Clown Alley.

Look for Michael "Coco" Poliakovs, "Prince Paul" Alpert, Duane "Uncle Soapy" Thorpe, Gene Lewis and Albert "Flo" White (in his final Ringling season) as the nurse.

Wonderful clip! Nice to see my old pen pal Gene Lewis. I might have seen this when it was originally broadcast, but not since that time!
For some reason I never thought mixing stage comedians with circus clowns ever worked. It always seemed like two worlds clashing ... and the regular comedian always came away looking lame. Maybe it's just me ... But it was great seeing the old Ringling crew!
