The Cole Bros. Circus is a medium-sized American circus. It was founded in 1884, as “W.W. Cole’s New Colossal Shows”, by William Washington Cole. In the 1930s, the circus was home to two noted animal trainers, Clyde Beatty and Allen King, both of whom traveled in their own railroad cars. Another well-known performer with the circus was Bobo the Clown. As of 2014, Cole Bros. Circus is one of the few traditional circuses in the United States that remains under the Big Top tent.
