From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigationJump to search For other uses, see Clown alley (disambiguation). The clown alley in a circus is a backstage area, usually very near the animal pens, where clowns change into their costumes and apply makeup. Generally, the clowns' personal props, costumes, and other items are stored in this area as well. Clown alley was usually very close to the Big Top tents, along the side like an alley, so the clowns could get in and out quickly. If the circus show had some problem with a performance, the ringmaster could yell out "Clowns Allez" meaning “Clowns Go!”. Today, most clowns do not use tents for dressing and markup, as travel trailer or motor homes are used. The term has also come to mean any professional grouping of clowns, in general, regardless of whether or not they are affiliated with a circus or carnival. [1] In Clowns of America International, "clown alley" is the name given to individual chapters, which function similarly to a union. A Clown Alley Local will co-ordinate social events as well as professional development for members, as well as direct employment opportunities.[2] ^ allaboutclowns.com, clown alley ^ Clowns of America International Categories: ClowningCircus slang Not logged inTalkContributionsCreate accountLog in This page was last edited on 10 September 2019, at 17:32 (UTC).

What is a Clown Alley? By Bruce "Charlie" Johnson. In the circus, Clown Alley has two meanings. It is the area where clowns get into make up and keep their ... Creating Happy Memories that Last a Lifetime In the circus, Clown Alley has two meanings. It is the area where clowns get into make up and keep their props. It is also the group of clowns performing for a specific circus. There are many theories as to the origin of the term. Two theories are given most frequently. The first theory relates to the location of Clown Alley. Because of powdering their make up, the clowns were given their own section of the dressing tent. This section was nearest the side wall so the clowns could easily duck under the canvass to powder outside. This section was the darkest because it was the furthest from the opening to the tent and the lights hanging from the center poles. The darkness and wall down one side made it seem like an alley, so it was dubbed clown alley. According to this theory, the people who dressed in the alley eventually became known as the clown alley as well. The second theory is based upon one of the functions of a clown. If there were rigging problems or somebody was injured, the clowns would fill in until the show was ready to resume. The traditional method to signal an acrobat to go (start a trick) was to yell, "Allez Oop." (Pronounced Alley Oop.) According to this theory, if the clowns were needed, the Performance Director would yell, "Clowns Allez," meaning, "Clowns Go." (I don’t know of any occasion where a performance director actually used that phrase.) Eventually the group of clowns became known as a clown alley, and later the place where they waited between acts also became known by the same name.
