“I always had a fondness for that kind of work, but several years ago I joined a circus troupe as a producing clown, and, naturally, that job gave me a chance to practice a line of neck-breakers. That’s really where I got my experience. I don’t rely much on science in taking falls, for really the most scientific tumbler in the world may easily hurt himself. My motto is: Throw yourself into the game and trust in Providence.”Ben Turpin
