Jon Weiss’ love affair with the circus spans three decades.Over the years, he’s worked as a clown, a human cannonball and a master of ceremonies.He even wed his wife under the big top at Madison Square Garden, arriving at the altar in a clown car. A bear served as the ring bearer. Elephants acted as bridesmaids.
“How many people can say that they create memories for people every day, that they create laughter?” asked Weiss, who has served as the host of Circus Vargas since late 2007. “I’m able to go in the circus ring every day and I’m able to do something that I really like.”
This Fourth of July weekend, Circus Vargas pitches its big blue-and-gold tent at the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo. The show, held in a theater- style tent that seats 1,500 comfortably, features clowns, acrobats, aerialists and more.
“At the very end of the show, (after) you’ve seen all the performers doing these amazing things … you get to meet them,” Weiss said. “Because of that, the memory is enhanced 100 times.”Read more: http://www.sanluisobispo.com/2011/06/30/1663646/run-off-and-see-the-circus.html#ixzz1QqbNtPWs
