More of the Dykes Bros. Clown Alley 1972


Here's some more of Don Bridwells clowns doing first the Washer Women Gag and then The Teeth Pulling Gag. I have to say that this is something that the newer producers today have let go of. And I think it's a shame. Now most so called "clowns" are acrobats. And most, even large Shrine Dates maybe will have one clown in the show. And take advantage of the Shrine Clowns not professionals. I've always beleived there's two things a carnival has to have, a Merry go round and a ferris wheel, or it's not a real carnival. And a Circus has to have clowns and elephants to be a real circus. I guess that's an old fashioned outlook but then I guess I'm old fashioned!
