Baraboo - Saturday
Life on Circus Kirk was the opening discussion panel at the CHS Convention with Larry Cimino ( Press ), Charlie Boas, ( the only member to be on the show every season ) Mark Beard Winthrop ( Sparky the Clown and head electrician ) Sue Montague ( animals ) and Jim Keiffer ( Finances )
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
