Mayhem - Maryland Clowns
Mayhem began performing professionally in 1990 when he joined the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus. He toured North America for three years before returning home to Maryland. Since then, he has performed up and down the east coast in over 900 school shows, store openings, and local television and radio spots for McDonald’s as Ronald McDonald.
He has also performed on the Late Show with David Letterman, in seven national commercials, on the White House lawn with Shari Lewis, in professional musical theaters in Columbia and Baltimore, MD, and for hundreds of children at the John’s Hopkins Children’s Hospital as a member of the Big Apple Circus Clown Care team.
He has also taught circus skills at state and national high school theater festivals and has worked as a circus skills coach for performances at Imagination Stage and at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. His variety of skills, constant energy, and performance flexibility make him an excellent choice for any venue.
