PT Barnum Part 1: Without Promotion, Something Terrible Happens, Nothing.

On April 1, 1891, PT Barnum was contemplating a life of showmanship when he received a call from the future…

In this episode, Barnum will discuss his relationship with the 161-year-old nurse of George Washington. He’ll talk about the time he bet his entire fortune on a singer he had never heard. And he’ll share his greatest regret.

Start the episode now to join the conversation.




Adam Gertsacov is one of the most educated clowns in the world (barring certain elected officials.) He wears many hats, including those of a professional clown, an author, an influencer, an entrepreneur, a comedy director, a P.T. Barnum impersonator, a flea circus impresario, and the esteemed hat of the Clown Laureate of Greenbelt, Maryland. His shows have been performed in 37 states and 6 countries. His interpretation of PT Barnum is magnificent and will clear up once and for all whether Barnum was a scoundrel who cared only about money, or a savvy businessman who served and entertained the public for his entire life.
