Skip to comments.Clown cannot wear giant shoes due to health and safety

Valerik Kashkin, a clown in the Moscow State Circus, was performing in Liverpool's Sefton Park last Saturday when he fell from a three metre high slack wire, injuring his foot.
Although he continued to perform for the rest of the show, when he went to hospital later that evening, he was told he had broken the metatarsal bone in his left foot.
When he returned to the circus he was told by management he could no longer wear the size-18 shoes because they compromised his health and safety.
Mr Kashkin features in the circus' reworking of the Rasputin tale, The Monk's Dream.
His routine includes dressing himself whilst walking on a wire, dress himself within a hoop of fire, and playing a drum-kit, trumpet and double-bass all at the same time.

Mr Kashkin, 40, from Temruk, Russia, said: "The shoes are an important part of my costume"

From the title I was hoping it was about Obama.
Say it isn’t so, Bozo.
Yes, indeed his shoes are the only safety issue I can see here. Obviously any random man off of the street can safely perform all of the above as long as his shoes are of the right size ;-)
And, by the way, what is the right shoe size for this wire walking act? And why it's not the performer who decides that?
"Whaddya mean no big shoes???"
