ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Cole Brothers Circus began two days of performances at the Exchange Club Fairgrounds in Albany.

The show includes tigers jumping through flaming hoops, a family of tight ropers 50-feet above the ground and lots of clowns of course.

They even boast the world's largest cannon, one of the ring master's favorite toys.

"I have a little friend," said ring master Chris Connors. "He's under 4 feet tall. His name is Max. He's a little clown and he thinks it's his circus, so he tries to still the show. He tries to interrupt me. He wants to be a magician. He wants to be shot out of the worlds smallest cannon."

There will be two more shows Tuesday at 4:30 and 7:30 before the circus heads to Dothan, Alabama.
