Clown down – Rob Torres

Sad to report the death of Rob Torres, who was a remarkable and talented clown and throughly decent human.

I first saw Rob perform in 2010 and was lucky enough to work with him a couple of times in a traditional circus in Italy not long after.

Every show he tried something new and ran over time. It wasn’t his fault. The audience fell in love with him each night and we didn’t want him to leave.

Tragically he’s left us now but for those of us lucky enough to have seen Rob performing he will stay in our memories, almost certainly still over running.

He did clown right.
