Dallas — Dick Monday and Tiffany Riley, Dallas-based clowns who have had a long career in the circus and clowning world, started their own podcast, cleverly titled This American Goofball, about two years ago. TheaterJones now picks up the podcast, running it on the third Wednesday of the month.

You might know Dick and Tiffany as NY Goofs, which has morphed into The Laughter League. They engage in clowning at hospitals for sick kids and patients, via Funny-atrics, and also involved in the DFW theater scene (Dick will direct Harvey for WaterTower Theatre in 2020). Between them, they have performed for Big Apple Circus, Ringling Bros. and circuses around the country. For the second year, the Laughter League is producing a circus in a small tent near the Bath House Cultural Center, on the banks of White Rock Lake. Last year, there was some mess with this because of torrential rains and flooding in the area. ("For some reason, circuses attract rain," Monday says in the new podcast.)

The Petite Palace, which features them and other clowns, magicians, and circus acts, runs Oct. 17-Nov. 3; you can buy tickets here.

In the latest episode of This American Goofball, they talk about bringing Petite Palace back. Click on the play button below.
