The beginning of Circus PaZaz Little Circus Big Fun! In summer 2012 clown friend Susi Oddball & circus enthusiast Steve Jacks encouraged Zaz to visit Fred Delius from Fred’s Flying Circus as Fred after many many years in circus was thinking about building up his tent for the last time, to concentrate on other artistic & musical projects. Fred knew Zaz from when he led the clowns conventions school tours in the 90’s
