Madame & Monsieur
MASKED CIRCUS CLOWNING
Madame & Monsieur offer 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 based on real-life 19th-century clowns painted by Toulouse-Lautrec. The Acrobuffos are the only circus clowns world-wide using half-masks instead of make-up.
