The Ramazini's are a clown duo based in DFW. They both toured the United States and Mexico for several years with Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus. In that time, they performed thousands of shows for thousands of people in arenas like the American Airline Center in Dallas, Staples Center in LA, Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and the Allstate Arena in Chicago. They have performed in national parades such as the Macy's Thanksgiving parade. The Ramazini's, otherwise known... as Kelli and Julio, have also been on national television, news channels, radio and newspaper all across North America.
Julio Ramazini, is from Sao Paulo, Brazil. He attended circus school in Rio De Janiero for 4 years, where he was scouted out by a Ringling Bros affiliate who offered him a contract on the spot. In circus school, he studied many, many things, but preferred, juggling, stilt walking, unicyling, rolling globe, basing for canastilia, basing for perch, and trapeze. He has many physical skills, but his natural knack for comedy by far outrules everything.
Kelli (Brown) Ramazini, is from right here in Dallas, TX. She joined the circus at the young age of 19. She hadn't ever been to the circus until her 19th birthday, but that day she fell in love. She studied, and practiced circus skills day after day. Two weeks later, she auditioned for The Greatest Show on Earth, and made it! Her greatest female inspirations are Annie Fratellini, and Lucille Ball. She pulls her humor from the everyday mundane and learns from observing people interacting with one another. Children are her greatest inspirations!
Julio and Kelli both left the show in 2013, and have been working even harder on mastering new circus skills and creating new shows. They are both instructors at Lonestar Circus School. (www.lonestarcircus.org) Kelli teaches aerial silks, lyra, trapeze, juggling, and contortion. Julio teaches clowning, juggling, unicyling, rolling globe, and silks!
