On the following pages you will find a collection of photos of the clowns of the Clyde Beatty Cole Brothers Circus. This is a small circus based in Florida which travels across the country putting on shows under the "Big Top." The clown alley at this circus is still a self-standing tent where the clowns prepare for the shows. It is generally off limits to the public. Most of the circus acts which travel around the U.S. today have modernized their operations, and have done away with the idea of clown alley as a tent. At the modern circus the clowns prepare for shows in the trailers or recreational vehicles where they live.
