PT Barnum Part 2: Money is an Excellent servant, but a Terrible Master

In Part 2 of the 1891 conversation with PT Barnum, he will explain the difference between fraud and humbug. He’ll explain where he drew the strength to recover when his life’s work was burned to the ground twice, and he’ll give us all some tips on the Art of Getting Money.

Start episode 2 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 over 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.
