A Bumpy Debut – A Clown’s Life Ep. 8

Get short URL

Dmitry Shindrov arrives in St. Petersburg for his big debut as a full-fledged clown and puts up in a modest hotel. He’s brought a gigantic suitcase to put his bicycle in during one of his acts, but unfortunately, it’s not big enough! To make matters worse, his cap is too small, and the costume isn’t quite right. Nonetheless, his first performance comes off perfectly, and the second goes well, despite a slight hitch with a rope trick. Only the hula-hoop stunt in the last act leaves something to be desired. The only real disappointing note is that none of Dmitry’s clown-colleagues managed to attend his debut performance. To close out the show, part of the acrobatic team from Deryabkin’s travelling circus wows the crowd on the ‘wheel of death’.
