The Greatest Show on Earth

Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey has reached the end of its run. They are closing down. Their last shows will be in May of this year.

Not to worry, however.

The Greatest Show on Earth is about to begin.

Keep your eye on the center ring. That's where the clowns are. The clown in the orange hair is for the moment the main star, but keep your eye on the ringmaster. That's the fellow running around with no shirt. A lot of spectators think he's the Strong Man, and in one sense he is, but he is really the ringmaster. He goes by 'Bad Vlad,' and he's a downhome hoot.

He is an accomplished puppet master, too.
