Freaks and Geeks: Memphis has a clown and his name is Larry



This Friday and Saturday under the big top—well, actually at TheatreWorks— Memphis's own International Circus star Larry Clark, will perform a one man show featuring "Dangerous Circus Skills, Amazing Magic, Juggling Dexterity, Comedy, Theatrics, and other feats of Larry-ness!"

Clark got his start touring with the Grunge-era irregulars in the Jim Rose Circus Sideshow. Eventually he became the host clown for Ringling Bros. Here's a video of one gentleman juggler telling his unique, touching story. And driving a nail up his nose with a hammer.
