Kelly Miller Circus Blogs

....Photo from the Kelly Miller Circus Website....


Thank goodness for the internet..Because of it we can now follow the day by day adventures of this wonderful mud show from 3 different sources..The first"The Adventures of Steve and Ryan" is the wacky daily snipets from clown alley written by Steve Copeland..I love the rabbit catching contraption that he and his working partner Ryan built..They give us the day to day run down of everything from fire ants outside their door to what they eat after the show..LOL..As he states on his heading..You'll laugh,you'll cry, it's better then"Cats." They have quite a following already,and as Show Biz Dave stated,it will likely be the hit blog of the season..But it's not the only K&M Blog around,just the newest.. ..Texas Jack Rabbit Catcher..Photo from The Adventures of Steve and Ryan....


The second Blog "The Circus Diaries" is written by none other than Mr.Casey McCoy Cainin..It seems that not only is Casey an extroadinary animal trainer, but also an accomplished musician,playing the local Paris and surrounding area bars and music palaces(LOL)in the off season. On his blog he posts captivating videos of the ins and outs of the training of his tigers. You'll follow along with every new trick he adds to his act. The latest being a three tiger hind leg walk..We also can watch as his newest addition Shonti grows up and adapts to life in the circus..Also on this blog are posts about the daily struggle of life on a mud show..Peace and Chicken Grease..LOL.. ....Casey's New Wardrobe..Photo from The Circus Diaries....

The third K&M Blog is truly my favorite,and if you have not read this gem,I suggest you run not walk over to her web site, " The Mudshow Diaries"..This blog is creativly written by Valerie Berta Torales..And besides the day-to-day posts of the daily grind of working and living on a mud show, she fills the pages with delightful photos..Shots of the lots,the views,the backyard,the parties,the children of K&M,performers,and even local Wal-Mart parking lots..LOL..There is tons of wonderful reading on this blog as she posted all last season, just check out her archives, they are a treasure trove of insider information on this show.. ....Party on K&M 2008..Photo from The MudShow Diaries....

Thought your readers might be interested in a circus documentary I just completed, “Tearing Down the Tent,” which focuses on the circus I traveled with as a child. We recently filmed the Cole Bros. Circus, with my friend, Jamie Reel, running away to join the circus, like I did as a child. During his adventures he got to stand inside the Moto-Globe of Death with a motorcycle racing around his head, work as a clown and ride an elephant.

You can check out the trailer at:

Thank you for writing about the circus and trying to help keep this wonderful culture that I enjoyed as a child. Michael Knox, director/producer of “Tearing Down the Tent.”
