After 146 years, the Ringling Brothers Circus took its final bow last night. Their last show EVER happened in front of a sold-out crowd at the Nassau Coliseum in New York. You can watch the entire performance HERE. The name of the company is officially "Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus". Barnum & Bailey was combined with Ringling Brothers in 1919, but Barnum & Bailey goes back to 1881 when it was formed from two other circuses.
