A clown spent 40 years making people laugh. Then, he takes off his makeup to reveal the truth.

“If there is someone who is going to reach out, shake your hand and befriend you at the circus, it’s going to be the clown,” Big Apple Circus clown Joel Jeske said. “Clowns fall down so we don’t have to.”

For clowns like Slava Polunin, who has dedicated 40 years of his life clowning the art of foolishness, happiness is both an art form and a personal mission. In this short, we follow Brent McBeth, Joel Jeske and David Shiner through routines and look inside Slava’s famed Snowshow and his Academy of Fools.

Clowns speak the universal language of laughter to blur the line between fantasy and reality — and bring joy to millions around the world.
