Cirque de Purée

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki
The Cirque in Springfield

The Cirque de Purée is a French-Canadian circus that travels the world.


The Simpson family attended, although Homer didn't want to. In the circus, they allowed audience participation (although the guy was obviously part of the circus) and had acrobats and clowns. Marge was amazed at the positions the women could get their bodies into, but Homer was highly unnerved by a juggler in a skin-tight outfit performing practically on his lap.

The show had to be cut short as a storm hit the tent, causing it to fall apart.


The acts include:

  • Ushers that disappear into thin air.
  • Acrobats that join together to form shapes, such as elephants.
  • Clowns that carry jars of rainbows.


Tickets to the circus cost $80 and are non-refundable. A pamphlet promoting the circus says that the performers "don't believe in refunds or exploiting animals for entertainment".
