It’s not often you get to watch a clown perform in front of an audience of thousands, but that’s exactly what happened on Saturday night at the 2017 National Clown Show.
A crowd of more than 300 people, who were largely from across the United States, watched as the performer pulled off a complete 180 degree turn to become the first person to perform in a mirror with his face and body in front.
The performance, dubbed “The Clown’s New Face,” was one of the best in recent years, with attendees singing along to the performers performances with loud cheers and applause.
The clown, named the Clown Prince of Crime, had previously performed in front a crowd of roughly 5,000 people.
He had also performed in 2015 in front 3,000 spectators, and has performed at the 2016 and 2017 National Poetry Slams.
He has been the subject of two movies, including one about his life that was released in 2016, and starred in a series of TV shows that were filmed on the streets of Hollywood.
His clown persona has been used in other films and TV shows, including the recent “Walking Dead” episode.
“He’s really a comedic star,” the Los Angeles Times reported.
“His career has taken off with some people and some people have been very critical of him, but he has really taken off, and I think it’s because of the attention he’s gotten.”
The performance was so well received that it was even picked up by CNN, who called the performance “one of the funniest performances of the year.”
The comedian was asked what the audience thought of his performance.
“They’re like, ‘What the f**k, the clown?'” he said.
“It was just really weird, and people were very respectful and had a good time.
And then the whole thing kind of took off from there.”
