As we all know clowns need giant oversized shoes clown shoes in order to be clowns. One clown, however, will have to do without his after a health and safety crackdown. Valerik Kashkin, a clown in the Moscow State Circus was performing in Liverpool’s Sefton Park last weekend when he fell and injured his foot whilst performing on a three metre high wire. When he returned to the circus he was told by the management that he was no longer allowed to wear his oversized shoes. Mr Kashkin is worried that the lack of oversized shoes will impact on his act and make it less funny.
