´╗┐Miss Martel stands in the set of Big Top Academy.

Miss Martel is in her forties, with long slightly wavy red hair and wears a red striped buttoned-down sweater and a blue headscarf.

She says HELLO EVERYBODY.
AT BIG TOP ACADEMY, WE PRIZE
INNOVATIVE STUDENTS WHO COME UP
WITH INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCES,
ALWAYS, AFTER MONTHS OF
SUPERVISED TRAINING
WITH TEACHERS LIKE ME.
SO KIDS, GET INSPIRED BY THEIR
SKILLS AND CREATIVITY BUT BE
SAFE.
DON'T TRY ANY OF THIS
WITHOUT PROPER CIRCUS COACHING.
ENJOY THE SHOW.

Axel sits in a chair.

Axel is in his mid-teens, with slightly long straight blond hair and wears a yellow and black sweater.

He says HI.
I'M AXEL AND THIS IS MY
PERFORMANCE FROM THE CIRCUS
SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS.

The Big Top Academy logo appears with the caption "Big Top Performance."

Axel says I WAS SO STOKED TO BE THE MC FOR
THE SHOW BECAUSE I GOT TO SHOW
OFF ALL THE CLOWNING
SKILLS I HAD BEEN WORKING ON.
I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A CLOWN
BUT THEN I FOUND OUT THAT THE
HEAD OF THE PARIS
CIRCUS WAS IN THE AUDIENCE.
I GOT SO NERVOUS.
IT WAS MY BIG CHANCE TO IMPRESS
HIM AND AT FIRST THINGS WEREN'T
GOING SO WELL BUT THEN I FOUND
MY COURAGE IN MY INNER CLOWN AND
THANKS TO SOME IMPROV
I GOT A TON OF LAUGHS.
EVEN THE PARIS CIRCUS
GUY CRACKED A SMILE.

Wearing a clown costume, Axel starts doing cartwheels and funny moves in front of the audience.

He puts a mic on a stand and the stand drops.

The audience laughs as he keeps trying to get the mic stand.

He finally lifts the mic with his mouth and then accidentally kicks it. He stops it from completely falling with his feet.

(APPLAUSE)
(LAUGHING)

He accidentally pushes the stand and it starts moving to the sides and Axel follows the moves.

(APPLAUSE)
(LAUGHING)

Then he starts scratching his clown nose with the foam on top of the mic.

Finally, he balances the stand in his mouth.

(LAUGHING)

(APPLAUSE)

Axel says HOPE YOU LEFT THIS
PERFORMANCE LAUGHING.
THANKS FOR WATCHING.
