Paul Miller is the innovator of Circus Mojo
. He began his professional performance career as an apprentice with Devou Shakespeare and Ken Jones in 1992 where he played four small roles in Richard III, and was delighted to earn $50 for the summer.
In 1996, Paul left college to tour with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. During Miller's time in the circus, he drove the proverbial clown car, walked on stilts and fell in love with entertaining. The following year he returned to graduate with a degree in drama from the University of Cincinnati's College Conservatory of Music.
Paul left for the Big Apple in 1998, and made the best of every opportunity - from playing Robin Hood at Martha Stewart's holiday party to appearing as a bartender on One Life to Live
. Although Miller enjoyed acting, circus arts became his true calling.
Miller has performed as "Pauly the Clown" in the US and abroad, including a six month international show in Japan and a few tours in Germany. Miller has bestowed his expertise by offering thousands of workshops and performances in NYC, Chicago, Cincinnati and Northern KY.
In 2009, he moved his own three-ring circus, - wife Renee, daughter Hope, and son Lucas - from Chicago to Park Hills to be closer to his family. He bought the old Ludlow Movie Theatre and is currently renovating it into the Circus Mojo Center, a circus training and performance space. Circus Mojo is available for one of a kind productions, unique team building workshops, summer camps and private parties.
