Josh "Meatball" Dummit, breaking in on Cole Bros. clown alley
Just out of his teens, Joshua Dummit marks his first year of clowning on Cole Bros.  Hired by Elvin Bale after a cold interview, "Meatball" has been heeding the advice of more experienced joeys and the ringmaster in shaping his big top appearances, as he explains to Lane Talburt.
Thanks for your support of my continuing efforts to videotape interviews with circus personalities.  In coming uploads, you'll see the results of visits this weekend to Kelly Miller Circus in Dalton, MA, and Circus Smirkus in Richmond, RI.  As always, suggestions and critique are welcome. 
Have a great weekend, and stay cool.
Best wishes,
Lane Talburt
