Nello

To publicize the opening of the Big Apple Circus, Bello the clown did a rope walk from the David Koch Theater to Avery Fisher Hall a few weeks ago, going over the fountain at Lincoln Center. The spectators were all quite nervous!

That's a good way to promote a circus! My guess is that he didn't have a safety net along the way.
