RIP Gerry Cottle. A very sad day for British Circus as one of the leading lights for years in the industry Gerry Cottle sadly passed away yesterday.
You taught us all a lot and steered the course of British history for many years.
I personally am very grateful for the experiences and opportunities I had working with Gerry.
Here is one of mine.
It a pleasure being a foil in the PR stunt that was behind Gerry’s master plan.
Gerry and PR went together hand in hand.
His ability to generate publicity and awareness that the Circus is in town was incredible.
Our American clown (in the video above) knew nothing about the forthcoming PR stunt she was about to walk into. Denise coped admirably and got on as best she could in the situation. Beau Denning and I wrote her into the gags we had outlined. – We were all funny!
Big Thanks, Gerry Cottle RIP
Thanks to Mr Borkowski for the video posted of the news media Gerry created to promote the Christmas Show at the Wembly Arena.
My condolences to his immediate Family and extended Circus Family alike.
