Tom and Tammy Parish, along with their dog, Ethel, performing in the Come In of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus at Madison Square Garden in 1990. Tom and Tammy performed this routine on the show for six years, a rare occurrence during the Feld era of ownership, when most clown material was changed over after only a year or two.

It is my belief the photos were provided to The Widow Station by Mooky.
Mooky Cornish, Clown
Since she was a teenager in rural Ontario, Canada, Mooky Cornish has been fascinated by clowning. Her love of performing has led to her appearing for five years, in two stints, in Cirque du Soleil’s Varekai, with Pickle Family Circus and, in recent years, with acclaimed cabaret show La Soirée, which returns to London next week. As her character Gloria, a wide-eyed glamorous star (at least in her own eyes), she is genuinely funny, with a brilliant command over an audience. The Widow has known her for years and always loves seeing her perform. Adrian Arratoon spoke to her, while she was spending a couple of days in Montreal, to find out what she has been up to lately, and how a girl from the sticks became a global performer.
