Balancing act comes to Millom
Last updated at 12:17, Monday, 28 July 2014
A FATHER-DAUGHTER clown act juggled between audience participation and musical numbers in a family-fun performance.
Fizzy-pop took to the stage alongside her dad Tomato the Clown and her mum Cathy the Compère to entertain scores of children with their tricks.
The jokers balanced classic clean clowning with stilt walking and invited young volunteers to take part in some circus skills during the Sandow Clowns show at Millom Palladium on Tuesday.
The trio has been performing and touring together since 1987 when Fizzy-pop finished sixth form. They work with children’s cancer charity Click Trust – later Clic Sargent, and have raised more than £25,000 to date.
Fizzy-pop said: “We were delighted with the reception at Millom. We always enjoy performing there.
“The children love getting involved and are always keen to volunteer when it comes to audience participation. We try to get as many involved as possible.
“I love clowning because it gives me a chance to meet lots of new people and do something different.
“We’ve been working with the charity for many years because we think it’s a really good cause. It supports children and their families as well.
“It helps them both financially and emotionally and finds families accommodation near to where their child is being treated.”
