Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

Eight clowns in the Alley doing four spots and come-in?

I do three, come-in, intermission and blow-off by MYSELF!

I can only WISH that I had ONE other clown with me to play off of, much less SEVEN others!

It musta been nice...

The last big alley that I worked in was 1981 for Jimmy Douglass/Gracie MacIntosh in Rochester, New York.
There were 8 clowns: Buck Nolan, Middy Streeter, Eggroll, Elmo Gibb, Rick Legg, Vern Werner, Bobby Davis and yours truly.
Upon arriving in Rochester there were rumbles about the alley being 8 instead of 10 due to budget cutting. We did 3 gags I think, no come-in and no productions numbers. By the way, the money was very good.
