Andre McClain calls himself an overglorified fan of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s circus. And his job as ringmaster is to share his love of the show with audiences.
Ringling is bringing its latest “greatest show on Earth,” complete with a construction theme, to the Arena at Gwinnett Center this weekend. The show features a variety of acts showcasing performers from 17 different countries.
“This is truly a show that you don’t want to miss,” McClain said. “It’s bigger that the show last year and it’s a totally different show than what we’ve ever put on.”
This is the 143rd edition of Ringling’s circus shows and McClain’s first show as a ringmaster.
“Although I never dreamed it, it’s like a dream come true that I never dreamed,” he said. “Everyone wants to do something they love a make a living at it. I love what I do. I make a living at making people happy. They do the same for me.”
