EDDIE STEEPLES #2: CHIMPANZEES
Bears, & Chimps, I have never envied anyone who works either one of these animals, but to tackle both!!!!man there's gotta be a better way to make a livin'.
PERSONAL OBSERVATION: I'm going to quote Tony Steel again, "the problem with the Circus now is that there are no more 'characters' left". This was in no way a demeaning statement, it refers to those individual personalities who made our business what it was, and please notice I said , "was", through recent years we have seen producers & owners completely destroy the individualism of performers & their acts. They want to control the music, the wardrobe, and even the routine, I would have to ask, "if you didn't like the act why did you hire it", my point is the performers are not allowed to stand out, not allowed to be individuals, characters if you will, they are now merely members of the chorus.
