This spectacle's centerpiece is Bello Nock, a clown with sky-high hair and a penchant for mixing antics with daredevil actions. He left the Big Apple Circus in 2000 to work with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and returned last fall to the Big Apple, now in its 32nd season. The eye-grabbing fun will include a clown named Grandma, juggling, horse-riding, trampoline-bouncing and trapeze-flying. It's all part of a circus with clowns that try to be friendly, not freaky.
