Guest Instructors

Jay Stewart

Jay Stewart

After graduating from college in 1987, Jay Stewart pursued his Master’s degree in Theatre and Communication at Wake Forest University. While doing research for his Thesis project, Jay came across several references to The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Clown College. Professors and directors had always commented that Jay “fell down well”, so he took a chance and was happy to be accepted to the Clown College Class of 1989. This led to a two year stint as a Clown on The Greatest Show on Earth, touring the nation and performing for massive audiences beneath the Big Top. Following his dreams to Las Vegas, Nevada, Jay performed for over two years in The Three Stooges, Live! (over 3,000 performances!), as Moe, Larry, and with the help of a fat suit, even Curly! Jay was also lucky enough to be asked to teach at the Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus Clown College for its last five years of operation–slapstick technique, classic gags and character development. What an honor!
