NEW YORK (WLNY) — He’s been called “America’s Best Clown” but Bello Nock is no ordinary funny man — he’s a daredevil.

His motto is “No audience member should need more than the edge of his seat” — and believe us, he’s not joking.

The seventh-generation circus performer visited The Couch to tell us about his brand new show, Bello Mania.

Bello Nock’s career began when he joined Disney on Parade’s Peter Pan as “Little Michael Darling” at age six with Cathy Rigby.

Just three years later, he had his own wire-walking act and toured with his celebrated circus family.

More recently, Bello toured for eight seasons with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey®, becoming the only person in the company’s over 100-year history to have a production named after him.
