    Smile performing/acting as a clown

    His first acting experiences were performing/acting as a clown with his parents to sell hot dogs.


    Hi,
    Do both performing and acting fit in the above and mean about the same to you? Thanks.

    Re: performing/acting as a clown

    I'd say performing is the better word to use. I'm not sure a clown "acts" as such.

    Also, there is a collocation "acting the fool/clown" which means being silly.

    Thanks, Jamie and Anglika.
    To make sure, if "acting as a clown" doesn't work, what about "playing a clown?"
