I'd like to become a circus performer, but it seems so difficult without any prior experience. I've always loved to perform and entertain people, but unfortunately I have no paid job experience doing it. I know I can do certain things as a street performer, but it's just not very consistent money. Does anyone know of any steps I can take to get into the industry? Should I start doing a gig as a magician or clown for birthday parties to get some experience? Is there any way I can jump right into the industry?
