This website has as its aim to create, promote, and expand the clown community using the internet as a tool to do so.

It is the work of Adam Gertsacov, an actor, director, and clown based in Barcelona, Spain! (Hey, that’s me!)

If you’d like to find out more about me and my work, visit http://www.acmeclown.com or http://www.trainedfleas.com

I’ve been publishing this blog  since 2007, as time allows.  I used to be more regular about it, but time catches up with me.

I’ve got an expansive view of clown and clowning, so if you are even in the vicinity (magic, puppetry, sideshow, circus, melodrama, comic acting, eccentric dance, etc). I am interested.

If you are a clown or performer that would like to be listed on the site, please fill out the form below. In the comment area, please let me know anything you’d like me to know about your work, including your philosophy, your training, your best experience as a performer, or anything that will help me understand you. I will write my own article about you based on the materials, and I may contact you for additional details.

I don’t promise to list everybody, but I will try!
