Birthday the Clown featuring Chris without the Hat


"Birthday the Clown featuring Chris without the Hat" is a fun, circus and comedy, red-nosed clown show with a dangerous unexpected twist.


This is not your run of the mill happy-go-lucky clown show even though Chris without the Hat looks like a traditional red-nosed auguste clown. Not only is his humour direct, witty, and shocking but his arsenal of juggling props is not what is normally found in a clown’s suitcase. Chris without the Hat carries all sorts of props including but not limited to machetes, sledgehammers, fire, fire sledgehammers (because why not), rubber chickens and a fully functional, Echo brand, two stroke engine, gas powered, orange chainsaw.

Clowns! ...and also REAL circus. 


“Hoop and Hat” is a variety comedy show that reinvents traditional circus by pairing the fun loving clownery of Chris without the Hat with the aerial mastery of Carla Cerceau.

Audiences will be amazed by lions, lion tamers, ring masters, jugglers, aerialists, clowns, and fire performers all played by Chris and Carla. So, come one, come all, and join us in this off kilter summer circus spectacular that is filled with audience participation and big laughs under the big top.
