Clown Music

Clown music can be anything - whatever suits a clown's personality or the skit she is performing. Often a clown performs without music but, especially when he is using pantomime, music adds to the performance.

There is one song that is traditionally associated with the circus and, especially, circus clowns. That song is entitled “Entry of the Gladiators,” a military march composed by Czech composer Julius Fucik in 1897. It is also known by the title “Thunder and Blazes” from an arrangement by Canadian composer Louis-Phillipe Laurendeau in 1910.

A very talented clown, Julian the Juggler,
was asked to write a "Clown Anthem" and, after much thought, he put words to the melody of "Entry of the Gladiators"
and the song
"Big Red Noses"
was born!

Big Red Noses

(A Clown Song)
Words (c) Julian the Juggler, 2007
Music by Julius Fucik, 1897

1:We are Clowns with big red noses,
Hats and wigs and snappy clothes-es,
Oversize, enormous shoes;
We’re always happy – to meet you.

2:We make you laugh – so much you cry.
Sometimes – you won’t believe your eyes!
Big Top tricks and silly shows,
We tell you jokes you may not know.

3:You might hear us coming before you can see
The Clowns in the distance all singing off key.
We don’t walk in straight lines, ser-ious-ly.
And each Clown is diff’-rent, thank-ful-ly!

4:We are Clowns, we make you smile.
We often come from miles and miles.
Around and about and up and down
- The one way system in your town.

5:We are Clowns with big red noses,
Hats and wigs and snappy clothes-es,
Oversize, enormous shoes;
We’re always happy – to meet you.

6:At all celebrations, for any event.
Indoors, outdoors (or inside a tent!)
For magic and mayhem with gallons of fun,
Two Clowns are four times as funny as one!
