Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - Kids at the Home of the Innocents learned all about clowning from performers with the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus.
The clowns taught the kids what it takes to be a circus superstar and put them through a miniature version of clown college.
They even saw their teachers get transformed.
If you'd like to see the real clowns in action, the circus runs now through Sunday, May 18 at the KFC Yum! Center.
