Helena Amwrosjewa & Georg Schachnin

The Moscow State Circus in the 1960s featured the following clown act.

An amazon and a tiny absent-minded professor come into the ring. She plays a trombone loudly, skilfully and in horrible taste; he accompanies her on the piano. They then both remove their wigs to show that the Amazon is a man and the professor is a woman.
