Today in Heritage History, April 16, 1994, circus performers Marissa Young (24) and Matt Richardson (21) wed. It was a marriage made in circus heaven. The two met at the circus performers annual dinner as Ms. Young asked if he would “pwease pass duh cweam gwavy”. Mr. Richardson fell in love after watching Ms. Young perform her sword swallowing act and later courageously tame a wild lion, making the lion put his head in her mouth. Their circus admiration was mutual. Mr. Richardson had his own circus reputation for being able to “fill a clown car” by himself.
