    I just ran across this. I'm amazed that I had never even heard of it before, as much of a fan of Emmett Kelly as I am. (I named my son Emmett for goodness sake.) Take a look and I hope you enjoy it!

    Yeah I didn't know if anyone had posted this video yet (and I didn't really feel like searching through all 50+ pages -_-). This video is from the 90's and the quality is kind of bad, according to the comments the movie was a actual a series of 26 episodes (it's over 3 hours long). I hope you find it to be entertaining ^_^ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHdsAPhbiqM

    Pretty silly, but it did give me some ideas about what to say if your balloon pops.

    This thing totally went viral (12 million views already!) but it's something I can't stop watching. It's also a big inspiration for clowning, I think. I have actually been incorporating some of the footwork in everyday interactions. It's even better when you have no idea what you're doing... it just looks sillier that way, and you're a clown, dang it, it's OK to be silly. But there's also some Groucho Marx and some Laurel and Hardy if you want to get some inspiration for silly dancing.

    The rest? Well, just amazing old school Hollywood dancing scored to Uptown Funk.

    Oh, yes, the performance I posted definitely reminded me of the Rastelli's, who (of course) do it So much better!

    You'll, ultimately, get a lot more out of this interview with Oleg Popov if you speak Russian. But, even just putting it on silent or listening to voice inflection, along with observing his facial and physical gestures can be enlightening. There is a good deal of video and photos offered, also, from his performance career. And that outfit he's wearing!!!!

    An entire routine based on the "fake stairs" gag.

    Interesting camera angles.... they showed the back of the wall many times. I guess they felt the need to prove there wasn't anything special back there. A real audience would never see behind the wall.

    This is so crazily sadistic. But wonderful in how it attributes character to the balloons and effectively turns them into puppets.

    Circus, as I remember it. Ringling in the late 1980s:
