In his new work The Education of a Circus Clown, David Carlyon layers critical reflections of personal experience to wider scholarship. Carlyon puts sentimental and romantic conceptions aside to address a fundamental question: What do clowns actually do? Carlyon, former soldier, playwright, actor, clown and academic, is the author of the critically-acclaimed biography of the clown of clowns,  Dan Rice: The Most Famous Man You’ve Never Heard Of.
