Circus Bogus

Postby marck » Mon Jun 06, 2011 7:48 pm

In the mid-90s there was a band in Fresno called Circus Bogus.
They dressed up like clowns and played music.

I helped them out in the beginning with their stage show, then I left Fresno.
Here are three parts of a TV spot they had.

Clowns are especially soothing to children:
