Bello Nock

Bello Nock (born 1968), usually known simply as "Bello", is a clown performed by Demetrius Alexandro Claudio Amadeus Bello Nock. A performer for three years with the one-ring Big Apple Circus early in his career, he later joined the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, where in 2008 he starred in a tour named after him, Bellobration, the first time in the company's 137 years that a clown had been given that honor. As of 2010, he is again performing with the Big Apple Circus. Nock performs without the traditional clown makeup. His signature appearance is his foot-tall natural red hair, flashy tuxedo or zoot suit with bow tie, white gloves and saddle shoes. He was named by Time as "America's Best Clown."
