About Circus Kid
Lorenzo Pisoni, at age 2, began in the family business by walking into the ring of his parents' Pickle Family Circus. By 6 years old he had signed a contract to be his father's clown partner. The Documentary, Circus Kid, centers on the familial dynamics that develop in the demanding environment of the circus when your father's a clown and you're the straight man.
Circus Kid expands on Lorenzo Pisoni’s autobiographical play Humor Abuse which played at the Taper in 2013.
