Big Top

Join us under the Big Top this week as your ringmasters Susie and Gyles crack their etymological whips to tell the stories of the freaks, geeks, and clowns that populate our circuses. 

We discover the famous hands Gyles has shaken at one remove thanks to Popov The Clown, we learn about the joke behind jugglers, and we ask what’s the point of acrobats? 

A Somethin’ Else Production. 

Susie’s Trio:
Quodlibertarian - a pedantic blowhard; someone who argues over every single point
Tranklements - bric-a-brac 
Fulminous - relating to or resembling thunder and lightning
