BILLY VAUGHN: By Paul Gutheil

A great Paul Gutheil photo that, to me, shows EXACTLY what a grotesque auguste American circus clown should look like. I seriously doubt that we'll see any more of them once the small handful left retire.

The whitefaces and tramps are all gone and soon the augustes will join them.

It's all been done before... and look out, here it comes again.

Somebody will get the idea that 3 rings make a great circus and when that happens you will see these make-ups return.

Hey Bill... did you ever perfect the back-flip routine we did in Clown College? If so you owe me $5.
