Pete and Jerry are overwhelmed by the crowd and lose control of the machine. Pete Nelson Martin isn't quite as ambitious, though he decides to stick around when he meets gorgeous circus owner Jill Brent Joanne Dru. Seems a tad unfair to all the other veteran clowns of this circus, who were also anti-Puffo. One night while working in a custard stand. The audience is upset and starts to boo Puffo, wanting him to go off. Jerry sneaks into Puffo the Wonder Clown's tent and tries on his hats.
Puffo gets quite drunk and interrupts the festivities to declare he is quitting. A clip from it was shown in a promotional short film, Paramount Presents VistaVision. Jill is quite relieved that the alluring Saadia is out of her way. Saadia is well aware of that the survival of the circus depends on her, but she refuses to do the extra show.

Synopsis According to some eyewitness reports, the feud between and was at its peak during the filming of Three Ring Circus. Jerry has taken a job as apprentice lion tamer. Did he bring a real orchestra in the clown car? Morley finally allows Jerry to go into the ring in place of a sick clown. Everything Jerry tries sincerely, ends up inadvertently funny aiding the high-wire act, being shot out of a cannon, trying to retrieve a puppy in the audience , while Puffo watches in miserable jealousy. A car arrives in the ring out of it comes Pete, dressed in a clown suit.
Even with all the plot discrepancies and childish mugging, Jerry and Pete share a mature arc of fundamental disagreement and reconciliation. He is set on being a circus clown, but his plans are squandered when they meet the circus manager Sam Morley and owner Jill Brent, who is also ringmaster. He arrives in a clown car, thereby ending his beef with Jerry, whereupon many clowns pile out before Pete himself does. Morley catches him red-handed and scolds him. Pete, wearing nothing on his upper body, shows off for Saadia, giving her a private demonstration of his skills on the parallel bars. One wonders how Martin and Lewis might have grown in film had they continued after 1956. Horrible parents, breeding a horrible urchin.
Jerry starts performing under the name Jerricho. Then another resolution that is touching yet equally stupid. Eggelhofer from as the German lion tamer. Even the crowd emits a startled gasp. Pete and the clowns rush in with a net and catch him when he falls. Is that really the message the film wants to convey? Jerry's words ring in Pete's head while Jerry performs and delights the children with his clowning.
Jerry and the other clowns decide to perform the show anyway, and Jill meets them at the outdoor arena. Morley sends Jerry to help Puffo dress for his performance. Morley insists the circus would go bankrupt without her. So how did we hear his voice so clearly from within the bodies of clowns? Jerry is ecstatic, but one performer unhappy with Jerry's big break is Puffo. As the new title Jerrico The Wonder Clown implied, the resulting edit lessened Martin's screen-time and threw the emphasis to Lewis' character even more than in the original film. Jerry and Jill are delighted to see Pete join in the fun.
And what Martin and Lewis actually did. Or is Jerry going to save the clowns from their mediocrity and vices? So jealous she too threatens to quit unless the circus gets rid of Jerry. Was he laying sideways across them with his mouth out the window? Morley then talks Jerry into becoming a human cannonball. This clown is obviously hurting — empathizing with her deep sorrow that no comedy can cure — and she laughs at his pain! Whatever the case, the film offers a comparatively relaxed Martin and Lewis, wandering through a thinnish plot with amiable finesse. Pete gets angry and punches Puffo in frustration.
As the plot rolls merrily on, Pete finds himself assisting temperamental aerialist Saadia Zsa Zsa Gabor , while Jerry does his best which is none too good as the assistant to lion tamer Schlitz Sig Ruman. Soon after, in Saadia's tent, Pete explains to Jill his plan to increase the profits with gambling. Pete comes through for Jerry, starting a slow clap for him in the awkward silence another example of the poignancy of their relationship. Jerry, innocent as always, forgives Puffo to his face after the incident, in unbounded empathy. Whatever the case, the film offers a comparatively relaxed Martin and Lewis, wandering through a thinnish plot with amiable finesse. Other observers have noted that the boys behaved with thorough professionalism throughout the shoot.

Other observers have noted that the boys behaved with thorough professionalism throughout the shoot. Of course, the owner of the circus is a beautiful woman, Jill , whom Pete can fall for. In the final sequence, Jerrico is doing everything in his power to make a little crippled girl in the audience laugh. Of course, no one except Dean and Jerry themselves would know exactly when the duo began to grow apart, and this movie is as good a demarcation line as any to note the uncomfortable mood on set. The circus continues its tour. Jerry goes to great lengths to get a sad-faced handicapped girl to laugh. When Puffo the Clown Gene Sheldon drinks himself into oblivion, Jerry takes Puffo's place, proving his worth by getting a crippled child to laugh.
The circus has financial problems, so the only way that both Pete and Jerry can be hired if they help out wherever needed. When Jerry accidentally ends up riding the unicycle on the tightrope, the crowd hushes. Pete, watching her perform to a capacity crowd, gets an idea how to save the circus. Pete flirts with a very receptive Jill, but when he asks about the circus's profits, she is furious and slaps him. He is an instant hit with the audience, even bigger than Saadia, who gets jealous. Is it playing on a portable device? After the show Jerry tells Puffo that he is not angry with him. The audience roars with laughter at Jerry's fumbling attempts to climb a rope ladder while holding the bike.
