I caught up with Rory this week. It’s been a while since we’d spoken. Last I had heard he was working with Roger on a new, innovative, ground breaking clowning routine. The Ring Master was most impressed and since then, Roger & Rory have been working non-stop, touring the country with a rather well known, big named Circus. Rory has been having a ball and had finally found his love for clowning. Unfortunately, on the day I caught up with him he wasn’t feeling so happy. There had been an accident in the lunch time show. One of the Toy Poodles had come off second best with the Ring of Fire & Rory wasn’t coping so well….he wasn’t in the mood for talking. I got this photo but no interview. Hopefully I’ll get to catch up with him next time the Circus is in town.
