OTTO GRIEBLING: Probably the greatest come-in clown ever....I can still hear those metal pie pans as he came into the arena ( Madison Square Garden and ect.) to warm the crowd up....Note Griebling photo has Wash.,DC - Date would relect ULINE ARENA.....Show people use to call it the OLD ICE HOUSE....Ringling after the tented era made their return to Wash., DC in ULINE....Most to the shows were turnaways....tickets were scalped outside...
