Ringling: Engine Gag 1991
Greg DeSanto and Kevin Carr perform the engine gag during Come In of the Blue Unit's 120th Edition of Ringling in 1991.
The engine gag is one of those rare Feld era clown routines that lasted for two tours. In 1990 it was performed by Greg and Chris Wilson. Kevin Carr replaced Chris for 1991 and 1992, and Joey Kohler was Greg's last partner for the gag in 1993.
