Madame and Monsieur

The characters Madame and Monsieur are excellent and very funny circus clowns with three unique acts that fit easily into a circus or variety show. Featuring a bouncing butt, a pool noodle sword fight, and a flying head, Madame and Monsieur create big laughs in every country they visit.
The characters are historically based on actual 19th-century clowns painted by Toulouse-Lautrec. The Acrobuffos are the only clowns world-wide using half-masks instead of make-up.
