Vidbel: Hair Grower

Nothing says American circus clowning like the Hair Grower gag. The same can be said for the work of Billy Vaughn and Mike Snider.
This duo presented classic American clown gags throughout the 1990s and into the early 2000s on Vidbel's Olde Tyme Circus.
The ringmaster is Dan McCallum, who was a clown on the Ringling Blue Unit from 1988-1991 before becoming a ringmaster.
