Before Hugh Jackman was P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Showman, he was just one of the clowns at the circus. Well, not a circus, but at children’s parties. When Howard Stern heard that, he wanted to know if the actor was any good at it.
Jackman was honest and said he was good at until the kids hit three years old. After that he was awful. In fact, he did a Party for eight years olds and he was left with egg on his face. Literally, because the tykes threw eggs at him. Not only that, but they also kicked him when he was down. Again literally. Did he mind? Nope because the little ones were having fun.
When he was done with that party, he was done being a clown. He admits, he is a crappy one.
Hey Hollywood, are you listening? You need to make a movie about a down on his luck clown who works the party circuit. Think Bad Santa but with a clown.
