41 shows, 8 cities, 270 packets of string cheese, and you. That's right, we need your support to launch the tour de clown 2012.
Kickstart the Clowns to Canada
The good news is that we have been accepted to perform in Montreal, London, Calgary, Winnipeg, North Hampton, Boulder, Arcata, and San Francisco.
The bad news is that we have to raise an estimated $12,500 to make it all the way across the continent and back again.
The good news is we have already raised $10,000 through our work performing for companies such as Dream Works, Standford Hospital, and the makers of Pac-Man. We have also been street performing, teaching circus, and selling our organs.
The bad news is that we are out of extra organs.
This is where you come in. Yes, your extra organs would be great, but if you could just send money that would be easier for us (and you).
You may say, "That's all well and good but I don't want to give my money to fools."
In answer I must quote the San Francisco Bay Guardian:
are serious clowns, and their work is extremely silly."

Please help us share our love of laughter to children, the elderly, and you. This tour also has the potential to blast our company off into a new realm of performance prosperity.
When we started Pi: The Physical Comedy Troupe almost 8 years ago it was a simple exploration of wonder. The concept of approaching every day life with child-like curiosity inspired a wealth of laughter, but not money... we have come a long way since then. Our dream is to be able to support ourselves through performance work. The networking, exposure, and experience on this trip will be a huge step in helping us realize this dream. So please donate!
A Little About The Show
This summer, the US based clown ensemble, Pi: The Physical Comedy Troupe, brings the Wild West to the north. Incredible acrobatics, high speed horse races, and duels to the [overly dramatic] death await you in this fast paced circus and comedy explosion. So saddle up and trot on down for some side splitting comedy by the award winning Pi Clowns.
