Kelsey Custard

When Kelsey Custard was a kid in Sacramento, she didn’t go to the circus or see clowns. Now she’s clowning for Cirque du Soleil and making people laugh all over the world. Her latest show is Amaluna.

"I could be own self [in clowning], and my take my flaws and my weirdness, and my body and make it into something special and unique."

See Kelsey Custard perform under the big top in Amaluna. The show is running through Jan 12 in San Francisco’s Oracle Park.
