Clowns of the Rolling Circus: Part II

The second installment in our Clowns of the Rolling Circus series. Did we save the best ’til last? Read on to find out… (Alternatively, join them on Europe’s most funnest bus tour!)

 

(pseudo)-Reuben

Magician, overlord, stand-up comedian and tour guide, Reuben is one of the Circus’ major attractions and thus much too busy to talk to us. The best we could do was use Tinder to find and interview someone with a relatively similar name (who also happens to be an ex-Stokie, wow mind blown). Readers, meet Robert.

What do you bring to the Rolling Circus?

It’s always funny when Stokies match, lol. Oh I was on the Circus last year, I’m not with them anymore. I was a videographer. I work for an American company now. I also filmed San Vino, Bulls and Tomatina.

What is your favourite thing about Stoke’s Rolling Circus?

That it’s crazy, hahaha.

Which of the other staff members do you secretly lust after?

Probably the office cactus, Ramona.

What is your spirit animal?

Freddy Mercury’s sex drive.

What is your favourite destination on the Circus itinerary/which one are you looking forward to the most?

I mean, the bus is pretty bitchin.

What is the craziest thing that has happened to you/that you have done abroad?

What, is this Reuben’s survey? Actually it sounds like Jim’s. Either way, I’m pleading the hell out of the Fifth.

No! Just curious, you sound like you’ve traveled a lot. What’s “the Fifth” mean?

Well I’ve been all over Spain with them. The Fifth Amendment in the US means you don’t have to give testimony that could incriminate you, hahaha. And the answer is Prague.

 

Toni aka Chelsea Sugar

If you thought Fergi was g-l-a-m-etc., you should meet our girl Toni – stage name Chelsea Sugar. Contortionist, burlesque dancer and Dark Starr Inked Models Pageant finalist, Chelsea is like the rose between a whole lotta thorns (no offense Reuben, Rubics and Mr Suntan). Get along to a Rolling Circus show and watch her werk it like Rihanna.  

 What do you bring to the Rolling Circus?

I’m a contortionist. I bring a bit of a circus act I guess, we have Reuben who’s a magician and then the band, so I like to think I tie the two acts in together.

What is your favourite thing about Stoke’s Rolling Circus?

My favourite thing is probably the bond that we all form on the road. Definitely by the time we get to Oktoberfest we’re more of a family than we are a circus. That’s probably my favourite thing.  

Which of the other staff members do you secretly lust after?

I think it’s no secret that I’ve got a bit of a thing for long hair, so I think Zel’s a total babe, I think Brendon’s really hot, and Mitch and Dean are pretty cute.   

What is your spirit animal?

My spirit animal… um… a sloth. No, probably a wolf. The wolf is my favourite animal, and I do a bit of a solo act… I dunno, I guess I just really like them. Does that make sense?  

What is your favourite destination on the Circus itinerary/which one are you looking forward to the most?

Last year I really loved Budapest, because I had the best time in Budapest, but I think that this year I really fell in love with San Sebastian. The food and atmosphere was probably my favourite.

What is the craziest thing that has happened to you/that you have done abroad?

I think it was probably yesterday actually, at Disneyland in Paris. I lost a game of odds and I had to steal something from Disneyland, and so I stole a pair of Mickey Mouse ears.
