I got the chance to visit the Circus World Museum last week and if you haven’t been there in a while, this is the year to go back. When you get there say Hi to Rodger the clown, one of Miller & Mike’s friends who also toured with the Ringling Bros. circus. Tell him you know us and he’ll be extra funny.

New this year to the museum is an indoor theater showing an amazing magic show. The big top show has some amazing acts as well. My favorites were the contortionist, the monkeys and a great comedy trampoline act. There is also a good dog act, unicycles and of course Rodger the clown.

Baraboo really is Wisconsin’s hidden treasure. Along with the museum Baraboo has a great downtown square with not only quaint cafe’s and the Al Ringling Theater but also the International Clown Hall of Fame. When you’re there say Hi to Greg and know that you’re talking to the soap gag King. He’s another former RBBB (Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey) clown but his resume only starts there.

Have fun.
