Clowns gather in Yekaterinburg

The fifth World Festival of Clowns opened in Yekaterinburg on November 22.

Clowns at the top of their industry from across Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Belgium and Israel meet every year to perform for crowds. The annual festival is not a competition and there are no judges, Voice of Russia reports.

Sergei Prosvirin, who performs with a saxophone, succeeds top Russian clown Yuri Nikulin as Russia's representative at the festival.
