Checking out the ‘Competition’ – A Clown’s Life Ep. 11

Vladimir Deryabkin visits the Nikulin Circus to check out ‘the competition’ – the ‘Equivoques’ clown troupe from Ukraine. The newcomers are very nervous about their first performance, as the show will also be a last run performance, where the audience usually consists of veteran performers with sharp and critical eyes. After their first act dancing and juggling falls flat, the second skit receives a better response by adding a fresh twist to a time-tested illusion. However, it’s the troupe’s third sketch that steals the show – their signature act featuring paper planes even took them to the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival, where festival president Urs Pils called it “a genius idea.” After the show, Deryabkin visits the clowns in their dressing room and gives them some valuable advice.
