The finger puppet interpretations of Greg Diamond.

According to the OC Register, Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus will hold clown auditions today at 10:00 a.m.:

While the circus is in town, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will be looking for new clowns for future productions.

The circus is holding clown auditions from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Honda Center, 2695 E. Katella Ave.

Aspiring performers will be asked to put on three-to-five-minute routines that show “exaggerated facial expressions, athleticism or any unique physical skills, an understanding of comedy, as well as a sense of personality,” according to the circus announcement.

The proven digital dexterity of CATER “general counsel” Greg Diamond de la Brea, demonstrated last year in a finger puppet performance before the Anaheim City Council, could be just what Ringling Bros. is looking for.
