Bringing the best medicine

to the under-circused everywhere.


Spreading circus joy from Syrian refugee camps in Jordan, to the West Bank of Palestine, to the curfewed streets of Cairo, the Emergency Circus brings laughs and love where health and happiness struggle.

Our Troup Manifesto

     Composed of superhuman circus performers from around the globe, Emergency Circus administers inspirational circus shows and workshops to  the hospitalized, the homeless, the imprisoned, & the under-circused everywhere. 

     This non-profit seeks to inspire, entertain, and enliven humanity in peril. Through spectacle, performance and the power of the human spirit, the Emergency Circus are out to achieve the seemingly impossible. To replace fear and grief with laughter and joy, if only for a little while.

Follow us on our continuing  Adventures!

     The Emergency Circus were recently selected as the beneficiary at a Northern California festival called The Soup, who were able to raise a large donation for the Circus. Our new sponsor Many Mouths, One Stomach have been incredibly supportive and we have working with our lawyers and partners toward becoming our own non-profit.  

     We are currently performing multiple shows a day in Houston and east Texas for communities affected by Hurricane Harvey. This Hurricane Healing tour will continue through mid October. Next we plan on visiting people affected by fires in Northern California. In January, we plan to head to Puerto Rico for more Hurricane Healing!


The Emergency Circus brings love, laughter, & inspiration into harsh & devistated areas worldwide.


   Death and conflict surround the tiny country of Lebanon. With its north and west bordering Syria and its south bordering “the occupied land” as they say (Israel according to official US policy), the Mediterranean is their only peaceful neighbor. Five years ago, the horrors began next door and a river of refugees flooded the country.

  Around one million Syrians have joined the half million Palestinian refugees to make up about one third of the countries population. They were all accepted because Lebanon knows the horrors of war and the bliss of peace.

The refugees who choose to live here say at least they can still see Syria and they can still hear the bombs so they know what’s going on. They keep hoping for those explosions to stop so they can go back and rebuild.

  Lebanon may not have much to share, but they have some kind of a heart. And they have a few clowns. Emergency Circus joined Clown Me In at the beginning of both our tours for a party that neither we nor these smiling kids will soon forget.
