Ukrainian Humour Meets Moscow Circus Discipline – A Clown’s Life Ep. 10

Get short URL

A Ukrainian clown troupe, the ‘Equivoques’, has arrived in Moscow to perform at the Nikulin Circus. Its members, Georgy, Yury, and Dmitry, are a bit nervous, as they’ve heard performers at the legendary venue are ‘stuck-up prima donnas’. Their fears are not assuaged by their initial encounter with the circus’ super-strict director, Natasha, who doesn’t appear to appreciate their sense of humour. They find a more welcoming colleague in sea lion trainer Gayane Martirosyan. Meanwhile, Vladimir Deryabkin and Aleksey Emelin finally manage to get together for a rare meeting of veteran clowns. Aleksey is keen to pick Vladimir’s brain for drumming tips and gives him a special gift that he’s brought back from Japan. Later, he proposes teaming up with Vladimir at the Nikulin Circus for a double act sometime in the future.
