Perolito the clown applies his makeup in his trailer about an hour and a half before performing under the big top during the Cole Bros. Circus on March 26, 2010, at the Ladson County Fairgrounds in Charleston, South Carolina. It takes Perolito, a third-generation clown, 30 minutes to apply his makeup.
